How do I prevent a Windows 2008 Server from booting in Recovery Mode

Last Modified: 2015-03-10
Server keeps booting in recovery mode no matter if I choose F8 options such as "safe mode" or "last know config" or even "directory services restore mode".

How do I configure the server to boot in normal mode.

**not sure why or how this happened**

Windows SBS Server 2008 R2
