SBS 2011 VM wont boot

Hi I have a VM that is running SBS 2011 which isn't booting correctly, it seems to load up then after 10 mins it reboots itself.

I had a drive failure on the local physical server that is running the VM although this still runs find and so does 2 other VM's

I have replace the failed drive and all seems ok on that side.

I boot the VM and get to the login screen (at that point can browse to the server not a problem) but will then just restart.

It seems to do the same in safe mode with networking but I can access the server ok from normal safe mode and this doesn't seem to restart.

Don't have much knowledge of VM's etc but is there anything I might be able to do to "repair" the Windows install or even check why this is happening.

Any help would be great.

what does the Windows event log state ?

If I understand correctly the VM restarts if booted normally but does not in Safe Mode without networking?

It sounds like the network stack may be corrupt.

If you can log on in Safe Mode re-run the Integration Services install and reboot.
