    New Server running R2 extremely slow

    Hi all,

    We have just freshly installed R2 DataCenter (full) onto a new server and when i logged on for the first time it is running painfully slow. I have checked the performance and the CPU is constantly spiking at 98%. Has anyone got any ideas?, I am pretty lost with this. I tried to log into safe mode but when I come to the login screen it displays the ctrl+alt+del and before I have a chance to logon it just restarts.

    The spec of the server is 8GB RAM 4x xeon E5506@ 2.13ghz

    Hi Achandler,

    The only thing i can see is something called 'system interrupts' that is running 24% but i don't know what it is, I am not too savvy with server. but i cannot see anything else using the CPU to equate to the 99% CPU usage.

    IS there nothing at jumping even for a few seconds ever?

    Have you got all the drivers installed?

    There is nothing outstanding in device manager so i assume so.

    All sorted now, even though the device manager states that all devices are running correctly and I have nothing plugged into any of the NICs, I had to run a hotfix on the NIC and now everythin g is hunky dory. cheers achandler for pointing me in the right direction.
