Hi all, trust you are well.

I have an issue with a 2003 server that I'm trying to repair using SFC /scannow over RDP. Its requesting the Windows 2003 server disk.

As I'm a very long flight away from this server, i left a copy of the i386 folder on the HDD. The problem though is that SFC asks for it in the CDROM - is there anyway i can point SFC to the location on the Hard Drive?

It looks like it was installed using CD.  do the following reg hack on the server to point the install files to the local i386 folder:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup
"SourcePath"="C:"
"ServicePackSourcePath"="C:"

Just replace the C: to the path of the i386 (but don't include the \i386).  
e.g. c:\i386 - "SourcePath"="C:"
e.g. c:\install\i386 - "SourcePath"="C:\Install"

You might need a reboot on the server, but give it a try.
