Getting the workstation service to start appears to be the key here since all the rest of the errors are just cascade errors from that.  What is the Event Id on the workstation error that describes the RDR device driver?  Are there any errors listed in the event log prior to that during a reboot?

Are there any errors in event viewer?  Make sure the netlogon service is started.  Do you have network connectivitey to the share after you logon?

Check to make sure that you have network connectivity first, like stated above, before attempting to troubleshoot the problem. Once that has been resolved we'll move on.
