I'm running a Windows 2008 Server install that's been having trouble. It's had several anomalous reboots, and finally got stuck in a state where it couldn't finish booting. When I attempt to boot into Safe Mode, the last driver that appears before the process freezes is
How can I restore/overrwrite a file so that the machine boots again - or am I just out of luck on this?
As a note, I already tried booting from the install media and running
StartRep.exe - it claimed to have repaired something, but the problem persisted and there was no visible change.
It's sad that there are so many unanswered questions out there that are about pretty much this circumstance. There are even tragedies like a question right here on Server Fault with a Microsoft employee promising an answer, then failing to produce one. :(
