Vista's BSOP before login prompt

By it-mgr ·
I've got Vista's Black Screen of Purgatory (screen is black with a cute mouse cursor that actually works!) but nothing I've done will bring up the login prompt.

I've reloaded from scratch or restored this system from backup at least 8 times now, trying different scenarios...

Without fail, I am able to install all my apps and drivers, rebooting umpteen times and connect to my Windows 2003 Domain, reboot, get the CTRL-ALT-DEL prompt and log in as any valid domain (or local) user. I am able to LOG OFF and log back in again as a different user. After a while, I get bored and restart the computer.

This is where the fun ends: I get the cute little green boot progress indicator and then the screen goes black. BSOP.

Oh ya... It's a Dell T3400 with 64-bit Vista Business preloaded.

What the ...?

Disc In Drive

Hey,

Have seen a similar issue when there is a DVD disc in the drive, it just sits there forever unless you power off then it loads, slowly.

No Disk in Drive

It'll sit at the BSOP for days if I let it.

Shut Down

by BlackDiamond In reply to No Disk in Drive

Hey,

If you do a shut down instead of a restart does it come back up?

Shutdown or Restart All The Same

by it-mgr In reply to Shut Down

It's all the same, no matter how long it's been sitting powered off.

Finally got it!

by it-mgr In reply to Vista's BSOP before login ...

I had to create a new OU in Active Directory
and move this computer into it
then run the Group Policy Management Console
right-click the new OU and choose "Block Inheritance" so that policies aren't applied to that group
