Help - Can only boot from last known good config

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Jonathan Davey, Sep 29, 2006.

  1. Whilst trying to add an new modem card, a problem has been encountered
    whereby the server will only boot to configering network connections
    whereupon it hangs.

    I can only boot using last known good configeration, how do I manually
    configure or repair the server to use the this config automatically?

    Thanks
    Jonathan

  2. "Last known good" is saved when you log in successfully. So, when you
    logged in using it the last time, that should have become the current
    configuration again. In other words, you should not have to do anything to
    repair or use that configuration automatically as long as you were able to
    log in successfully.

    I'd go into Device Manager and remove that modem, then check with the
    manufacturer for newer drivers or other known support issues.

  3. Thanks Dave, although thats eactly what I thought would happen.... however
    it will only fully boot if I F8 and manually select LKGConfig.

    I have removed the hardware and application for the modem.

    Is there any "detect and clean" or "repair" options for SBS aside a scary
    full restore?

  4. Can you boot into Safe Mode (not LKGConfig)?

    If so, put the modem back in, boot into safe mode, uninstall the modem from
    Device Manager, shutdown, remove the modem and then see if you can reboot
    normally.
