This post is a last-ditch effort for ideas.
Windows Server 2012 64-bit. Dedicated hardware.
On reboot, the pre-login screen reports failed patches and attempts recovery. When I log in, the explorer.exe files are missing and I only have a windowed command prompt. Server services appear to be working (SQL, etc). It's acting like it turned itself into Server Core.
- There is no 'last known good' configuration.
- There is no restore point.
sfc /scannowreturns "repair in progress, reboot and scan again".
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealthreports no corruption
- All DaRT tools report a failure to run.
I'd love to be able to repair the OS, get a GUI back to use tools, and/or rollback patches.
Edit Powershell files are also missing.
