Windows 2003 crashes after patching - Beginning of another week of hell :-(

In the last blog I was talking about the end of two weeks of hell (End of two weeks of hell). I thought it was the end but it starts again this week :-(

I tried to install a new Windows 2003 Standard Server. The installation works ok. Then I use Windows Update to apply the 14 needed critical updates. Then the bad things starts. It can install 4 patches but 10 failed. Then it ask me to restart the server. And at reboot I get an error message:

windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system

Thats crazy!!! Did someone had the same issue?


  • I'm not sure if its the same problem, but my father's XP Pro box occasionally does the same thing on reboot. Running "chkdsk /r" while in the recovery console usually fixes it for him.

  • i told you: it's not the end ;-)

    what about installing cvs on the xbox??
