Hello everyone,

server info - server 2008 r2,  nothing had changed and all was alright until the server froze and we had to hard boot it.  Next the system came up asking if it could scan for problems and we said yes........after two days of waiting we hard booted it again and now we are at the black screen with mouse.
Things I have tried:
replacing COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM regs with reg backups.
startrep.exe
chkdsk etc.

Im just looking for more different ways to combat this problem that I haven't found on the net.

Please help
thank you

you can try to boot via F8 and select Last Know Good Configuration.
This may get you back.

Have you tried to reboot in SafeMode yet?

Insert the Windows 2008 server DVD, then after choosing currency and language click on "Repair your computer".
Then open the command prompt .
First: CHKDSK /R /F /X if it want to reboot - reboot then go back to the command prompt.
After that:
Copy COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM  from  C:\Windows\System32\config\ to backup directory
Go to C:\Windows\System32\config\regback and from there copy COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM to C:\Windows\System32\config\ . You will be asked about overwriting the files - overwrite them.
Then reboot.

it really wasn't that critical of a server it just held three different roles which was just a software install.   It was just a headache to reinstall....... thank you guys for all your input
