    Any ideas?

    I ran the Startup Repair function and the good news is I no longer get a BSOD, the bad news is that the system hangs with the mouse cursor on the screen after the Starting Windows screen, but then it just reboots .. no errors, just reboots .. GAH!

    I think I might just reinstall the server as I think it's beyond saving .. just trying to avoid the inevitable if anyone has any bright sparky ideas?

    Thanks
    Andy

    And I found the root of my problem .. CA ArcServe Backup r12.5 .. it breaks Server 2008 R2 ..

    Installed the Backup Software this morning, did the required reboot (so it can access open files etc) and BSOD with the PortMap.sys referenced again ..

    Just in case anyone else has a similar set up ..
