I still have this issue for many VPSes, here are more information I
have right now.
When the windows vps can not boot up, it will report that some files
are missed, or corrupt.
Usually I boot up the vps with windows installation cd, and enter the
and execute the command chkdsk /r
Then after this the system will boot up again, but after a few
reboots, the issue will appear again, Do you have any idea about this?
ONE MORE THING is that we do not install the OS manually, we just use
ntfsclone to clone the drive C to a new VPS, and boot it up.
