    Hi All,
    I have two problems with my 2003 server...I have recently
    upgraded to win 2003 from w2k server...I didn't have any
    problems upgrading it...my website was working fine...then
    i installed some critical updates and a partition software
    (Acronis partition Expert)..rebooted the machine...since
    then my website (which was enabled for anonymous access)
    is asking for username and password...I went thru all
    ACLs ...changed them to all possible combinations...but it
    was still asking for username and password to our website
    users...then i decided to restore previous system state
    from my backup tape...it complained about Active Directory
    running...then I rebooted the machine ...to my surprise I
    could not see "Advanced Startup options" (with F8 key at
    the reboot)....Can any one please help me...It's very
    critical for me to get the website up with anonymous
    Any suggestions and help would be immensely appreciated...
    thank you in advance...

    Press F8 as the system leaves the BIOS and before you see the Windows Server
    2003 splash screen.
