I originally set this server up back in 2008 as an Active Directory, File Server, & Print Server, and for the past five years or so I've always been able to login to the GUI as opposed to just a command prompt.

That being said, the very first time I tried booting from disk after I had those update errors on Jan 20, I did accidentally use the "Windows Server 2008 OEM Pre-installation Kit for Microsoft Builders Only" DVD as opposed to the "Windows Server 2008 Standard" DVD. However, when I wasn't given the "Repair" option I was looking for, I immediately switched to the correct DVD & rebooted, so I doubt that effected anything, & I don't believe it's currently in any "Server Code Install" mode.
