The 0x0000006b indicates a 3rd party error... do you have a USB hard drive attached to the server?  If so it should have been disconnected during your installation process.  You can try disconnecting it and rebooting.

Also, do you get this error if you boot into safe mode?

Yes my backup was to an external usb; it was turned off during the reinstallation of windows.  I only get this message after i succesfully reinstall sbs disk one; boot into directory restore in safemode; it restores the files; i reboot and blue screen of death.
USB is turned off after reboot just to make sure; same issue..

Turned off is not the same as "not connected".

I'd point out that the restore instructions (http://sbsurl.com/backup) have this listed as the FIRST item:

"Before installing the operating system, you need disconnect any external disk drives, such as USB or IEEE 1394 drives that were not connected to the server during the original installation."

But I'd also state that there is no instruction to boot into directory services restore mode either... so what method are you following to restore the server?

I followed this document
http://www.microsoft.com/smallbusiness/support/articles/backup_restore_sbs2003.mspx
To restore the server from backup media

1.
 As soon as the computer restarts, press F8 to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.

Note: If a logon screen appears before the Windows Advanced Options Menu appears, log on using the administrator account, cancel any setup screens that appear, and restart the computer. Hold down F8 while the computer restarts to ensure that you get the Windows Advanced Options Menu.
 
2.
 Select Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows Domain Controllers Only).
 
3.
 Log on by using the administrator password. In the Safe Mode dialog box, click OK.

Thanks

I had forgotten about that page... it unfortunately isn't dated, nor versioned, and really has been replaced by a more current method of restoring (as is detailed in http://sbsurl.com/backup)

But either way... you're right... you do have to install all of the same service packs.
