Hi guys how you doing?


first the operating system is windows server 2003 sp2 and Active Directory is installed in the PC. I want to restore the Active Directory becuse there is a problem with Group policy computers and users, so i have to go to "safe" mode called Directory Services Restore Mode and then i reboot my server and press the F8 Key at reboot. But I can not find the Directory Restore Mode, instead it gave me like this option

1ST FLOPPY DRIVE
HDD: PM-ST 3800 13AS
CD/DVD........
NETWORK real Tek BOOT AGENT

I TRIED THREE TIMES PRESSING F8 BUT I DID FIND THE REAL OPTION, AND ALSO THE "msconfig" WITH THIS ONE I FOUND THE RESTORE MODE AND I TRIED TO RESTORE THE ACTIVE DIRECTORY AND THE ERROR SAYS " YOU CAN'T RESTORE THE A.D BECAUSE THE A.D IS STILL RUNNING. GO TO DIRECTORY SERVICES RESTORE MODE" I MEAN I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

PLEASE GUYS I NEED YOUR HELP


THANKS

I,m sure someone will come up with a solution, but it might be quicker if you repost in the Windows 2000 forum.

Make sure you press the F8 key at the pause right before it says Windows is starting.

If you get this menu:

1ST FLOPPY DRIVE
HDD: PM-ST 3800 13AS
CD/DVD........
NETWORK real Tek BOOT AGENT

Then select the HDD option, and then immediately start tapping the F8 key.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

The solution is as you said " select HDD option, press enter, and then immediately start tapping the F8 key".
