autochk program not found on Windows Server 2003


I am running windows server 2003 on Dell Poweredge 2600:

Apparently the UPS died and now whenever I boot my computer, it starts to load and then I get the error message:

autochk program not found. skipping autocheck.

Then it just starts to reboot completely.  

What I've tried:

1) Run it in Safe mode > No good
2) Run last known configuration > No good

Any ideas?

I inserted the windows server 2003 re-installation CD and I do not have the option to go into windows recovery mode, I boot my server with CD in, and goes through various setup file installation, and then it takes me directly to the WIndows Server 2003 Setup where I can setup partitions.

What do i do?

I called dell and finally got to the reovery console option.  From here we ran chkdsk /r /f  and that didnt solve anything.  Please some help!

Also, we were trying to copy autochk.exe to c:\windows\system32 to replace the exisiting one, but apparently through the revcovery console we recieved a access is denied.  Dell pretty much told me im screwed.
