I was moving my equipment from an enclosed rack to an open one and upgrading the switch. I RDP'd into the server and shut it down. When I go to start it back up I get the "Loading files" message with the green bars then my cursor appears on a black screen (not moveable) and sits like that for about 15 seconds then re-boots. Disabling automatic reboot from the advanced boot menu has no effect. I can see that the system isn't loading the driver's for my RAID controller. I can put them on a flash drive and point the recovery tools to them and that will let me run:
chkdsk /f /r /b (Pass) sfc /scannow /offbootdir=E:\ /offwindir=E:\windows (Pass) bootrec /scanos (Finds 0 installations)
Lenovo TS430 Server 2008 R2 standard 64-bit
anybody got any ideas?
Edit: Doing the following from recovery prompt doesn't change anything.
c: cd boot bootsect /nt60 c: /force /mbr bootrec /rebuildbcd
