Windows 2012 R2 Server suck in repair screen

Anyone have any suggestions on repairing my Windows 2012 R2 Standard Server?

If i try and go into safe mode options, server will reboot and just return to repair screen.

only screen i can get into from the repair screen is the cmd.

sfc /scanow did say if found some errors and put them in a log, but when i reboot, still back to repair screen.

i also tried what was listed on this website:http://www.hackaapl.com/repairing-windows-2012-r2-startup/



I have a feeling your hard disk isn't functioning properly. Have you actually checked out that it IS being detected in the BIOS? If so, have you used another boot device (USB/DVD) to start a live environment (like Linux or WinPE) and check the content of the disk? If you can see the content, maybe still some is damaged, run any type of check you can run (badblocks/chdksk etc).

"Total identified Windows installations: 0" means that the RebuildBCD command failed.
Do you have a backup? Does it include the System State? What is the configuration of the drive(s) in the server?
If you do not have a verified backup, BE VERY CAREFUL. You may be facing a catastrophic data loss.



Here is what the log says from running cmd with the command sfc /scannow from the hard drive instead of running off the Windows DVD. I'm wondering why those commands failed...maybe cause they were run from the DVD?

Server is running a Raid1 for windows and data itself lives on a raid5. I'm not getting any warnings on bootup from raid or the hard drives. We were having some issues with group policy because some of the services stopped running. we had a very old policy that got pushed out with a disk quota. Stopped a few program services...nothing windows related tho. So was rebooting server after new GPO was applied.

I don't have a backup of C: but all stored data was being saved on the raid5. this server is a camera server, so data is all replace able if needed. just hoping to save time from reinstalling all the IP cameras again on the server. At this point i'm trying to figure what caused it as well.



Seems you are trying to repair some other type of disk (not the real installation, but rather the installation media itself, which obviously doesn't make any sense). Go to drive X: with the command prompt, and dir a few things, trying to recognize if it really was your OS disk.



I had already told you that RebuildBCD found NO Windows installations which can be caused by a drive problem; but, is more often the result of a Trojan infection.
"We were having some issues with group policy because some of the services stopped running." What services were failing?
