Windows storage server 2008 failed to boot with hal.dll missed or corrupted
this happens after maybe a windows update failed to rollback
tried all... ram, bios cmos battery, hard drive diagnostic.
tried starting with 2008 dvd anche chek for repair, installation is recognized but no automatic repair option available.
So from command line dos tried bootrec fixmbr and fixboot. rebuildbcd found 0 installation, so made command attrib to make visible then repeat rebuildbcd. nothing.
Sfc /scannow hangs starting, stopped on "start analysis..."
DISM in supported from 2008 r2, not 2008
Reading manually CBS log result failed installation of package 3 f KB2862335, then rollback and shutdown on 24 december, when server died.
file are accessible, a lot of boot file seems updated on 24 december.
Please help, now i'm remotely connected with Ilo2 and an installation dvd of windows 2008 r2 inserted
Ask me for details, i cannot format that server!
