I shut down my Windows Server 2008 machine, but upon restart I was presented with as screen stating that:
Windows has failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause... File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe Status: 0x000000f Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt
It is a Dell PowerEdge T300 server running Windows Server 2008 64bit with only VMWare installed.
