I had to replace a faulty SATA300 drive in a RAID 1 mirror configuration on an SBS 2008 server on Wednesday.
I had to take the server offsite as the drive took 25 hours to rebuild, a long time for 500GB.
Since then I have rebooted 3 times, each time taking 2.5 hrs to complete. It is stuck on "applying computer settings" for 70 minutes and the same time on "applying user settings."
Once into Windows I can open the menu from the START button but nothing responds from the meny using either the mouse or keyboard, The desktop icons do respond, but I wanted to get into services to check if anything had stopped.
Any ideas please.
