One of my windows 2008 didn’t come after reboot. Upon checking the console, saw a message stating “Please wait for the Windows Modules Installer.”. Had to bring up the server at the earliest. It took about an hour, tried reset but server was getting back on to same page. Application team was eagerly waiting for it to come back. Started looking for alternative methods to bring it up.
When checking server was pinging and able to shared folders. Hence, connected to the server from services.msc using the option “Connect to another computer..”
Disabled “Windows Module Installer” service and restarted the server.
Bang, server was back on its home page.
