I have a server that boots fine everyone in the office except for in the room I want to put it in. When I put it in that room it won't even get to the loading Windows screen it simply gets stuck in a reboot cycle. Other electronics have been known to fail in this room, is it possible for EMI to be causing this interference?

That or the power feed in that room is so overloaded or unclean that it's spiking, causing the machine to reboot constantly.

It is theoretically possible that EMI could be doing this but very unlikely, I think you're absolutely right about the power feed :) – Chopper3 Dec 28 '09 at 12:32
