its a boot cd, that will allow you access and tools for the server.
its and instal, and program, follow the directions to create one.
Easiest way is to copy the event logs off, and look at them on another system.  they should be in
on the working system, rt click on the "Event Viewer" and open log file.

If PE doesn't allow you to copy the files, try UBCD4Win, has a good gui, and might even allow you to view the logs right there.
