windows server 2008 r2 wil not boot

I have a windows 2008 server r2 that I tried to extend the partitions on.  I installed acronis but it wouldn't install correctly and wouldn't work. SO I went into the control panel and removed it and now the machine will not boot!  I dont' know what's wrong there's no backup and I can get into the windows recovery options but I don't know what to do.  Is there way I can do some type of system restore??? Please help

Tried everything for hours.  I wound up having to redo from scratch. - It couldn't be saved.

Did you try to boot in the Last Known Good Configuration?

why doesn't it boot?
blue screen?  hang during startup?  how far does it get?
did you try native tools for the partitions?  most common operations can be done without 3rd party tools

Where's that option?

when POST finishes, press F8 (might have to several times) and you will get a menu with that option

As Seth says, A little bit of information would be nice.

Saying "It won't Boot" Tells us nothing at all.  What does it do? A screen shot of where it goes wrong? Any messages?

Well it appears to be blue screening before it gets to the login screen but I can't see what the problem is.  I tried to install acronis disk director.  It didn't work so I uninstalled and rebooted and now it's not rebooting.

the F8 menu should have an option to disable automatic restart on failure
next time there is a blue screen, it won't automatically restart and you can see the stop code

As soon as you get the listing of drives shown start pressing F8. It will bring you to a selection of Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration etc.
If Last Known Good Configuration does not help (it actually reverts the system to a snapshot which Windows takes before installing any system modifying software or update) then go to Safe Mode. Will it boot?

I'm closing this because I had to reload there was no way to save the OS.
