SBS 2008 not booting after BSOD
Posted on 2014-07-15
SBS 2008. We had a power failure this morning. I have the server UPS programmed to do an orderly shutdown after 5 mins of no power. I wasn't here to witness it so I can only assume that that occurred properly.
The server was turned back on after power restore, but apparently there was a BSOD of "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" with no further info noted.
They restarted the server via the reset button. Even when choosing safe mode, they get the Server scroll bar at the bottom, then the screen goes black with the mouse pointer, with a single HD led flicker every few seconds.
It's been a half hour so far. Can anyone advise about what to do?
