Unable to logon in DC 2008 R2 after the MSConfig selective startup RRS feed

  • Question

  • On a single 2008 R2 DC, I ran the Msconfig system configuration utility and have chosen a Selective Startup option. I turned off most of services, including MS', except Netlogon, Server and Workstation, RPC.  However, it looks other required services got disabled. I'm unable to logon anymore with a message ""An attempt was made to logon, but the netlogon service was not started".

    I removed the system drive and put it on an XP machine as a Slave. Loaded DC's HKLM and HKCU as hives and deleted all entries from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ services, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ State and others. However, I'm still getting the same message.

    I have checked:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Windows, but nothing found related to the Msconfig.

    How MSConfig works differently on Server 2008 from previous versions? What should I do to manually clean the registiry?

    Thanks a lot.
