Windows Small Business Server 2008 starts after the full restoration of the PC

I need help URGENT here. My company has a HP Vantage 2 hard drives with Windows 2008 Server. C and D, both have important data on them. D drive has become corrupted over the last weekend, and as a result, the server was very slow and data on the d drive was inaccessible. Unfortunately, D drive was somehow part of the boot sequence, and when I took it out, the computer would not start at all.

Well made to purchase two new drives of 1 TB and replace the old records with them (we need the extra space anyway) and I did a complete system restore by booting from the windows installation CD and choose the external USB hard drive, we had that we were using for daily backups. Restore seemed to be going great, it took almost 3 hours and when he was done he had some problems.

1 when the external USB drive was plugged and the system tried to start, it would give an error message and would not continue even if the BIOS was said to NOT boot from the USB key.

2. when the drive has been disconnected, windows seems to start normally, I would still get up to a point where I had a mouse cursor that I could move on a black screen, but then the computer would suddenly reboot! Like someone hitting the reset button. I can hear the drives stop when it happens. The same thing happens with no failure or last known good configuration mode.

It is a major problem because we do not have Internet or files. I wish there was a phone number that I can call for assistance. I would be happy to pay for it! even if it is a third party.

I saw that Microsoft had "pay per incident" support but it just says: it is $ 260, what for? An hour? A case? A month?

Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you

    Hello Ahmed - although this configuration "can work", Windows 2008 Small Business Server is not on the support list. This means that it has not been tested and it certifies to work with telepresence.

    To my knowledge, he's not on the roadmap for the future support however, I search and repost as soon as I have an answer for you.

    Kind regards

    Yes, it will work, and it is supported guest OS
