I've got a 2008 Server machine that's doing a rolling reboot, even from safe mode. I can get into the recovery console prompt. From there can I somehow view what's in the event viewer?


I would boot off of a BARTPE CD and then open the event viewer files (in %SystemRoot%\System32\Config) from its event viewer.
