I was having major issues with AD and DNS integration so I decided to demote my SBS2k3 server via dcpromo and upgrade again.

Bad idea...now, it seems my MOSS site doesnt work anymore, and I can't log onto the server.

Its stuck at "Applying Personal Settings" on the Administrator account

I saw this error when I booted in safe mode:

internal error: unavaible start active directory

Any ideas? I need this resolved ASAP so max points!!
