I have a problem,
I have recently decided to install Active Domain Directory Service on my Win 2008 r2 server. It was all well and good until I downloaded the latest windows updates from Microsoft (auto is off). reboot and crash boom bang, it just hung at the loading windows screen. Wasn't able to recover it so after a format and installing all the updates first (and creating a backup image this time) I installed AD DS. Same thing happens. Restored from image and tried again, same result.
Now I'm guessing there is some kind of incompatibility, but where, and how do I fix it, short of another format and no windows updates
