Error 1077: No attempts to start the servcie have been made since the last boot

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000' started by Richard M. Hartman, May 11, 2007.

  1. This is the (remarkably unhelpful) error I am getting with a number of
    services, that are apparently vital to running Win2000. (See the thread
    "Ok, now I never get past the boot screen . . ." for background on this
    problem.)

    Anyway, the "Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service" depends upon the "Security
    Accounts Manager". When I attempt to start "Security Accounts Manager" I
    get this ridiculous error. After all, I just attempted to start the
    service!

    Any clue what might be happening?

    Any ideas on how to correct it?

    Check the event log for error details.

  3. From the system event log, regarding an attempt to start "Distributed
    Transaction Coordinator" service:

    The Distributed Transactiontion Coordinator service depends upon the
    Security Accounts Manager service which failed to start because of the
    following error:
    No attemtps to start the service have been made since the last boot.

    This is ridiculous as I just manually attempted to start the Security
    Accounts Manager service.

    It gave me 1077 error (message same as shown in the log entry above) in a
    pop-up dialog when I tried to start it.

    There are /no/ entries in the system or application events log regarding the
    attempt to start "Security Accounts Manager".

    No other events? When you view the logged events in Event Viewer
    (double-click them in the right-hand pane) in the upper right corner, third
    button down is a copy to clipboard, then you can paste in the body of a
    reply message.

    Please do so for each of the different System Log events (that are a Type:
    'Error' or 'Warning') since last boot so we can see all of the event detail.

    Also check Device Manager for error codes and or non-starting devices.

  5. I will collect and post the system and application event logs.

    Device manager has only one device not working. Listed as "Unknown device"
    or something like that. I disabled it so it doesn't even try anymore.

  6. Ok. I booted safe, cleared the app & sys event logs, delted ntbtlog.txt.
    Attempted to boot in normal mode. After a while I powered down, booted in
    safe mode, and copied them off to a USB drive. They are available at
    http://www.catslair.com/logs.zip

    I saved /and/ exported the sys and app event logs, as well as dumping them
    with an old utility I wrote. (I think the export doesn't include the
    descriptions ... but my dumper was written in NT days, before the
    descriptions were unicode ... the most useful ones may be the .evt files
    produced from "save as...")
