Windows Failed Boot
« on: January 15, 2021, 01:35:23 am »
Hi there, I own a WS5400RN with windows 2012r2 installed on it.  We recently had a power outage and when I try to bring the system back up I get and error code 0xc0000185. Info: A required device isn't connected or cant be accessed.  All drives are green and the status windows says Boot from HDDx. Does anyone know what that could be?

Your best bet is to connect a monitor to the VGA port on the front to see what's going on.

It might be stuck at checkdisk or something.
