    Hi Guys,

    I have a virtual machine which runs Windows 2003 server, its a member of a domain (not a domain controller), its a secondary DNS server, and a file server.

    It never had any hickup for the past few months, amazingly, an employee removed the plug from the main server (the host) running all virtual machines, and after several attempts , i recovered other servers, except for this one.

    Its handing on "applyng computer settings" , i boot it in safe mode with networking, it works and enters.

    I added the registry value "WaitForNetwork" and had it value set to 1 , didnt work, i changed the virtual network adapter, it would reach the login screen, then it doesnt take any commands from the keyboard.

    But mind you, in safe mode, its pingable and all goes somehow well with it (ofcourse we cant leave it runningin safe mode, no real services would work).

    Any ideas?

    Very urgent matter btw

    thnx petaluma, but i tried that in one of the early steps... didnt work, tried ERD commander to help analyse things, didnt help.... and GUESS WHAT?

    i just removed the anti-virus and all worked out fine... thats really weird, its installed on all servers, has been there for over a year now, no server got annoyed from it, not even this one, but for some reason it decided to crash i think...

    removed trendmicro's officescan and installed mcafee...
