Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Windows Server 2008 hangs up while booting after Windows update applied several updates. The server is a virtual instance on a Server 2008 Hyper-V host. Other virtual servers are fine, but have not been updated.

The normal boot shows the horizontal barber poll forever. When I do a safe boot it also hangs up. With a "Please Wait..." after loading many '.sys' files.

The last successfully loaded file listed is: '\Windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys'

That is the extent of what I have been able to determine.

Two years later, I note that there's no resolution, and I'm having the same problem. –  Sean M Dec 8 '11 at 22:16

You can try to uninstall updates using Microsoft Diagnostic and Recovery Toolset version 6.0 or 6.5 (Windows Server 2008 R2).
