It probably additionally does not help that at one allude, to conserve disk area, the majority of the folders that Windows eats up drives via...

Hold on a sec:

"You should be an administrator running a console session"

You"re doing this over RDP aren"t you?

Try it from the actual console on the server itself or, as it"s 2003, attempt MSTSC /consingle prior to connecting to the server.

Have you tried SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode?

Those absent files can cause difficulties. You could be able to allude the tool at a 2003 install cd. But I"ve no principle what that would do to the server.

This was absolutely the case. I RDPed right into the host server"s desktop computer, then opened Hyper V Manager, and also opened the VM this is on... That functioned good. I"m positive it also would have actually functioned to usage mstsc /console too.

Thanks a ton!
