When booting, the following error occurs:

EventID  7026
Source: Service Control Manager
Description: “The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: i8042prt”

I believe this is to do with booting without a keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Click Start
Click Run
Type in regedit.exe
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesi8042prtParameters
Add a new REG_DWORD called Headless, and set the value to 1
