Booting and booting endlessly

    After a Windows Update on the end of March (Sorry, I don't know exactly
    which one), all of my three Windows Server 2003 SP2 where the update was
    accepted are booting and booting endlessly.
    After the system starts booting, I get a blue screen then the system boots
    I was able to take a picture of the blue screen: the bottom of it is there:

    That's tests servers ( on a specific network) but their re-install will last
    more than 10 days...:-(
    I tried TDSSKiller from Kasperski but without any success: it found nothing.
    Maleware Bytes didn't find anything.
    The Recovery console didn't recover anything.
    chkdsk did not find any error.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks for your help!

    PS: All these servers have a dual boot with Windows XP Pro . XP Pro doesn't
    have any problem

    You are not the first one to have the same issue with this W2K3 update. Your Video
    Cards driver is out of date on all of your 3 W2K3 machines
    Here is the short answer for your Stop Error and reason for your continuous reboots.

    <STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000020, 0xF789A834, 0x00000000)>
    Translation of the above error that is generated
    A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch.
    These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a
    driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

    Boot into Safe mode and remove (uninstall) the Update. Then make sure you will have
    the Updated driver for you Video Card before attempting to download and install this
    update again

    Thanks a lot Peter,

    My 3 machines are quite different (1 ASUS laptop, 1 DELL tower, 1 Chinese
    tower) the 1st 2 years old, the 2nd 5 years old and the 3rd 3 years old). Is
    it possible that all these different machines have the same driver issue at
    the same time while running Windows Server 2003, while when they are running
    XP Pro SP2 (dual boot) with the same Windows Upgrade, all of them are
    working fine?
    Thanks again.

    Hi Robert,

    Did you ever resolve this problem as I have the exact same issue including
    same blue screen error.

    Its a dell tower with XP dual boot.

    Hi James,

    We worked all the day of Saturday with a system engineer who tried
    everything which could be disturbed by the Windows Update : drivers, KB,
    Services... without any success. So we are on the way to format the
    partition and to reinstall everything ;-(
    I just noticed that the only server which was spared by the Windows Update
    didn't have any dual boot with XP... ?
