Applying computer settings error

By rbelt_74 ·

I have gone through and set up DNS and Active Directory but as soon as setup finishes it gets stuck on applying computer settings and wont go past that.

To get back in I have to reboot in safe mode with the active directory backup mode and remove the server as a domain controller and remove active directory.

I am using server 2003

Why is this doing this???

Are you adding the PC to AD

Are you adding the PC to AD during the install?

I have seen many issues with this process. We usually install the PC as a stand alone on the network and then join it once the PC install is complete.

Nope it is the only domain controller we have so its creating a new tree. so if I want to try and re install the active directory and everything how can I un install the services and take the domain controller down without leaving corupted files??? what can I clean up so I can try reinstalling it again???
