Stuck in a Reboot loop

I have a Server 2003 AD Controler with Mirriored Drive. All was working fine until I rebooted the server. Now it is stuck in a Re-boot loop. It will boot up and ask me which OS to boot to.
1. Server 2003 Standard
2. Boot Mirror C: Secondary Plex.
It doesn't matter which one I choose I get the same results. It appears to be loading, The Server 2003 Splash screen comes up wiht the Scrolling line at the bottim. That goes away the screen goes blank and reboots. I have tried to boot to a Server2003 CD and run repair but it will not take my admin password. Any help willl be greatly appreciated.
Thank,
Joey

ok, try to enter with tools like ERD (Emergency Repair Disk) to reset the administrator password.
if you got administrator password then there's many ways to fix your issue .

Unfortunately, I dont have an ERD for this server.  Can I create one from a different server to accomplish the same task?

Following the instructions above I can't get to a CMD Promt. Not even booting to Safemode Command Prommpt.
I assume that the ERD Disk will allow me to do that? I am burning the .iso now.
