As the title suggests, clients DC (a Hyper-V VM, Windows Server 2008 R2) shows only a black screen after the Ctrl+Alt+Del prompt is flashed up. if I hit Ctrl+Alt+Del the logon background will appear shortly, then black again.
I can't log on by just typing the password.
I can't remote into it.
DHCP and DNS services are down.
I can ping the server.
I can see shared files.
I have tried safe mode.
I have tried last known good configuration.
I have exported the VHDs to a dev server and still black screen.
I have run chkdsk on the HDDs.
Any suggestions? Your help is truly appreciated!
