I have a standalone Hyper-V 2008 R2 server with 3 guests running on it.
After the reboot of the physical server it hangs on "Applying computer settings" for 3 hours. After that you get a chance to login but then again it hangs on "Applying user settings" for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Once you have logged in, even from safe mode, I do not get to see the Sconfig commands, it's just an empty Windows.
It does not matter how the server reboots, I still can't get the VM to start.
I have tried these things:
- Started server with no network (which makes the boot faster but I still can't see anything for SConfig)
- Started in safe mode (still same problem as above).
I do not know what to do now. This has happened to other servers too and the only solution I have found up to now is to rebuild the Hyper-V 2008 R2 core server.
