Memory test Loop on restart, very interesting.

 

I had this issue working on a clients server recently.

Issue : Whenever the server ( Windows server 2008 Sp1 ) was rebooted , the memory diagnostic started running.

If you try to Use Esc key to kill it, the server would restart the diagnostic.

Resolution :

This Issue indicates that there may be problem with the hardware. After research and discussion with the client came to this resolution:

Removed the Memory diagnostic from the boot sequence using WinRE

bcdedit /bootsequence {memdiag} /remove .

This offers temporary relief as we can get the server to functional state.

Client will run hardware diagnostic on the server provided by hardware manufacturer.
