Recovery of SYSVOL policies and NETLOGON shares

I recently had to wipe my primary server due to server errors (refer my only other question), however before I wiped the server (my only DC) I was able to add another DC online. Unfortunately, it would not allow me to transfer the FSMO roles, so I had to shut the original server (henceforth known as Svr1) and seize the all of the roles, that process was successful. Since, I have been able to do much more, since I was having replication errors, but the only error I have left is my SYSVOL is practically empty (read: 1 folder named to my domain name) and my netlogon doesn't exist.

I've read through these articles, followed them to the letter, to no avail. Let me know if you have any ideas or need any more info.
