Server 2003 boot up fault

October 12, 2013 at 23:32:32
Specs: Server 2003
My server Sys Vol became full as the original creater only give it a 17Gb partition. Consequently the system crashed and I am now getting the blue screen of death. I have tried rebooting it but it keeps coming up with the same blue screen. Full functionality of the server is still capable but I can't log into the system to carry out any repairs.

Any suggestions would be helpful?

You can try to boot the server with a Linux Live CD, to delete files in temp folder or move some files to another drive or partition, to free up some space.

When done, reboot into windows server and see, what happens.

We don't have any of the original software for the servers and there is no ghost image saved on the network. Have cleared some space on the sys vol of old baseline diagnostic tool tests and we still get the blue screen of death. No recovery console is loaded in the system and it wont respond to repair from recovery or the system disk.

Any other tips to help this problem?

You need to write down the error message, shown on the BSOD.
Mostly at the BSOD, you'll find the name of the file, which causes the error and a error number (0x000000xx).

Both will help, to find a solution via google or on Microsofts support page.

Try connecting via mmc from a networked computer to view disk space/run chkdsk /f and defrag the drive.

Sorry to say but your sysvol being full does not result in a blue screen. Its just file storage. You have something else going on ie. corruption of the OS. Might want to boot up on the OS cd and do a OS repair.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
