  • Windows 2003 64 Bit

    Hi,

    I have blade Server. It has a intel Xeon 1.86 GHz processor,16 GB of ram and 2*146 GB drives in a Raid 5 configuration. I installed windows 2003 64 bit OS and its was working fine till last week. But on monday 4th oct i rebooted the server and its sits at the windows loading screen with the bar moving across for about 6 hour and then its gets to the login screen.

    What could be causing this? why its taking so much time to come login screen.


    Thanks

    2 drives will be RAID 1, not RAID 5 (at least I hope it is RAID 1!!!)

    Is this a DC or a member server --- normally slow logons are to do with not locating a DNS server or a DC, so check your network configuration. (and tell us about your infrastructure otherwise we are really guessing)

    Also try booting in the "logged mode" (Press F8 on startup) and see if anything shows up
