I have a Dell Latitude E5400 I've installed Win 7 Pro on for testing in our 2003 AD environment. Downloaded, installed latest updates and drivers after Win 7 install. (except BIOS) I join the laptop to the domain and it goes smooth until after the required reboot. It flashes the ctrl, alt, delete screen and then immediately switches to the Shutdown screen and reboots and hangs on the Starting Windows screen. I then reboot in Safe Mode and it hangs on CLASSPNP.SYS file which after I research I find is supposedly a scsi driver. The laptop has a sata WD HDD in it. I can do a restore on it and it will restore to before it was attempted to join the domain. Any help is greatly appreciated!
What type of A/V is installed on the problem laptop?
The only similar reference I found was at technet where the same problem was fixed by uninstalling Nod32. I would say it's possible for another type of A/V to cause the same problem.

You're not going to believe this. I should have tried this before I blasted off a post. However, maybe it will help someone who has the same problem and is stuck like I was.

Also, sometimes all you have to do is look for the easy solution instead of making it too hard.

Hitting F8 and scrolling to "Last known good Configuration" fixed the problem so far.

We are a fairly small company and I'm trying to develop an image so I am still in the building stages.

Thanks folks for all the timely responses and help!!!
I'll do my best to try to do the same.
