  1. Hello,
    server 2012 not booting. Power went out and battery didn't hold. Server got shutdown incorrectly.
    Was able to run chkdsk successfully, nothing concerning.

    Problem is sfc /scannow never works!
    sfc / scannow /offboot dir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows

    accessing from command prompt via booting from DVD.
    always get :
    "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

    what else can I try?

    Thank you,
