Today, one of the Windows 2008 server was rebooted and the server was not back online after the expected time. When checked the console, server was on to Windows repair mode. On multiple reset and reboot the scenario was same. Server was keep on login to repair mode. Laer, I was success in fixing the issue following the steps listed below:
Booted the server using the DVD or any bootup media.
Run sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows
If this does not fix the problem, continue with below steps:
Loaded hive into the registry:1. Open Registry Editor. 2. Click either the HKEY_USERS key or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key. 3. On the File menu, click Load Hive…. 4. Select System file from “c:\windows\system32\config”. 4. Find the hive you want to load and click it. 5. Click Open. 6. Key name as TEST
Checked with the currentcontrolset001
Unloaded the hives
Rebooted the server normally and the issue is fixed.Thanks, Winteladmin
