I have a Windows 2003 Server that fails while rebooting. 2003 Server logo appears for 2 seconds, then it displays a grey screen and always reboot. No way to use F8 while 2003 logo appears, then server force reboot at gray screen.
Trouble is since user download last MS updates, install them automatically, then reboot server just when prompted to reboot. User didn't wait to click reboot button when prompted.
All data still available on disk. I made a clone on another disk. Tried to use 2003 CD to process a CHKDSK at prompt, but don't know what else to do now.
I'm trying to find a way to enable 2003 boot without need to reinstall all applications and data.
