Windows Server 2008 R2 Boot problem

Server see's the BCD, loads Windows and get's to a movable Cursor and then reboots itself.

Back Story:  Failed RAID, rebuild and then moved windows files back to drive (blank drive) and should be ok.  something in the boot config is off and I can't tell what.

Are you able to use startup repair?

Although slighty different for you it may be worth trying as does sound like Boot config corruption

Please try my comments from http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_28352239.html#a39824862 and http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_28352239.html#a39826164
It could be the same problem. As you already see the cursor, it's not a boot problem, but a logon problem.

Thanks guys - it turned out to be corrupted Active Directory.  Some tinkering in DS Restore mode did the trick.
