    I am doing this NT4 BO to SBS2003 Std merge using the "Migrating SBS 4.5 and
    NT4..." whitepaper of April 2003. I have pushed client apps to Win2K and XP
    machines using Assign Applications Wizard (as per p.30). Now, when I got o
    most machines, the Client Setup wizard does not run. The machine sits there
    with a blank blue screen (not a BSOD) after login to the new domain. Even
    Ctl-Alt-Del doesnt work. Even Safe Mode doesnt get past it. Cannot make a
    correlation btwn the few machines installing OK and those that arent..

    Looks like an all-nighter....

    It only happened on 4 out of 15 WS's. I can find nothing that those 4 have
    uniquely in common. I also tried creating a new user, then logging on at the
    affected machine as that user, then copying the orig (locked up) user's
    Profile (using User Profiles applet) to the new user. Still happens so it
    must be n the Users hive of registry.

    Logged in as admin and as another user who had the same prob at THEIR
    machine, just fine on THIS machine. Anyone else?
