I have the same problem.

It occurs when I use this image (Win2k3 R2 SP2 Ent) on a BL460c with the latest firmware (iLO2 incl) but it doesn't occur on a new DL360 G5.

I am using Virtual Connect for Ethernet and DASD, no FC.

Hi richeal75,

It seems that it's an issue with storport.sys & QLogic HBAs. Microsoft has acknowledged the issue and have released a patch for it:

I've applied the patch and it worked (from the 2nd reboot). Note that mine used to take about 5 mins to reboot, but would eventually get there.
