SO you have no backup and this is your only DC? Your options a limited unfortunately.

You could try a soft recovery in DSRM mode:

1. Reboot / F8 / Directory Service Repair Mode
2. Start / Run / cmd / ntdsutil / files / recover

If that fails, try a hard repair (bear in mind this can result in the loss of some data - but that's better than your current situation). Again, in DSRM mode:

1. Start / Run / cmd / ntdsutil / files / repair

If none of these work, and you have no backup, it's either time to start from scratch, or call MS for support (as in the other question). The chances are for an SBS domain (max 75 users) you might want to rebuild yourself.

Always always backup your system state.
