  • It’s a full installation of Windows Server 2008? Not a Server Core installation? Does this happen

    Can you hit Win+R key to launch RUN window? If yes, follow the solution provided in Article ID: 970879. If it does not help, insert the Windows Server 2008 setup DVD and do a repair install. In CMD, run X:\setup.exe and perform In-place Upgrade of Windows Server 2008.
