    I thought I would share my solution to this problem.
    I too received the 0x51 error after applying W2k3 SP1 to a newly setup Dell
    PowerEdge 2850 server.

    Dell does have a fix for this, If you have already installed SP1 and are
    receiving the 0x51 error. The link is:

    Also, there is a patch that can be installed prior to installing SP1 to
    prevent this situation. (My situation was post SP1 installation, so I cannot
    verify this solution). The link is:

    Alternately, you can go to and search Technical Support for
    'regfix' or 'regprep'.

    I hope this information is useful in solving your issue.

  2. Good to know, but I find it hard that MS didn't test SP1 on a Dell. Dell's
    are pretty common servers.
