  • I connected a monitor and get the error message "the registry cannot load the hive ....."  My WHS CD's are the original OEM version. Is there any way to repair this error. If not, how do I reinstall. I have power pack 3 installed.

    You'll probably have to do a a Server Reinstallation (which wipes the OS partition, but leaves your data in tact).  However, I think the bigger concern is why do you have that error in the first place.  Did you have any type of power failure that may have messed up the registry?  Have you tried pulling the primary drive from the server, connecting it to a client, and running chkdsk /r on it?
