Windows Server 2019 stops during the boot process

[[Wishy]] 1 Reputation point

Hello forum!

Our server often hangs on restart.
After the start (EFI) the Windows logo appears,
but no spinning dots.
A reboot is necessary.
The start often works better when the boot process is observed with BNC.
But that can also be a placebo ...

Any idea how I can see where the boot process is getting stuck?

    I'd start by checking here and with manufacturer about support for Server 2019

    also check the latest ROM bios, firmware, chipset and driver support pack from manufacturer's site have been installed.

    Hi @[[Wishy]] ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A.
    Check if there is a memory.dmp under C:\Windows folder.
    You can download the WinDbg Preview from Microsoft Store for dump analysis.
