Dear all, I have a windows server 2016 R2, i recently pulled and installed an update and after which, i can no longer login with the local account credentials. Also note that the server is not on the domain.
I have also tried resetting the admin account using the installation CD, on checking diskpart and list disk, the system does not identify the C: Drive nor any other internal drive except the D: drive which the external DVD drive.
Please, has any one encounter such a case and i will appreciate possible solution.

Thank you

    Sounds like you'll need to load a disk controller driver.
