Hi,

I have been smashing my head against a wall on this and just can't seem to come right.

I would just like to install IIS on one of my servers running Windows Server Standard.
Now I have done this millions of times, but never before had this problem.
Every time it gets to the Windows Process Activation Service install part the server restarts itself.

There are no errors in the Event Viewer.

It shows this:
Windows Servicing started a process of changing package KB973917(Update) state from Installed(Installed) to Installed(Installed) (This KBxxxxx changes every time I try the install, it's not always the same update)

Then next error is:
The previous system shutdown at 07:55:35 AM on 2014/02/19 was unexpected.

I am stumped,

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
S

Yes it is. We been running it for a while serving mostly SQL databases. It is now necessary to put IIS on it for a particular app.

The resolution is to completely uninstall WAS before IIS reinstallation:

1) Uninstall WAS - Uncheck the whole child options for the parent node "Windows Process Activation Service" and below.

2) Uninstall IIS 7.0.

you should now have removed IIS.  

This does require a restart.

The exception for above removal would be you have shared configuration that uses IIS.

You then have to remove the shared configuration and do 1) and 2)

Lastly post reboot you can install IIS 7.0.

Hi,

There is no error screen. The Installation says installing and next moment the server restarts itself. What I gave above in the event viewer is the only logs I can find.

I have tried Server Manager as well as Web Platform Installer.

Thanks

Reformatted server and problem went away.
Not ideal, but had to get this server ready.
