Clean unnecessary files from your server.
When the drive is full, than is it not possible for your OS for writing data.
When the OS boot up your computer, than write it data to your hard disk.
When there is no room for writing, than will your hard disk or server no booting.

Maybe is it possible for you, that you get help from a friend with a Computer or Notebook\Laptop.
When your friend has a cable for connection between 2 Computers, than is the Computer or Notebook\Laptop the server and your Computer the client.
Via the friend's Computer have you access to your Computer.

About the cable for connection between 2 Computers, my apologizes, at this moment I don't know the name.
I thought that is a link sys, but I am not sure.
I think that there is someone here on B.C. that knows what I do mean.

Edit: I do now know the name of the cable what I do mean: It is the Crossover cable.
When you make a connection via that with the computer of your friend and yours, than have you access to your server.

A better explanation of what it will not boot means is needed here. Does it simply hang during load? BSOD? Lockup upon entering windows? The more information you can supply the better able we are to help you. Also what was the last thing you did before the reboot? Updates?
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
