SBS 2003 reinstall

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
SBS 2003 crashed overnight: no system file...tried a number of things to recover, no luck. Hard drive OK, multiple windows file corruptions, so I tried running repair from CD1, no windows installations to found. Ran windows install and chose keep existing ntfs file system.  Windows came up but missing full to do list.  mmc won't run, missing snapins. Installation renamed existing sbs and sql server folders as old, created new user folders....
This is a small 7 user business w/ only one real role for server, run third party inventory mgmt software on top of sql server.  Original install had seperate drives and partitions for apps, data and logs.  Need to get sbs and sql server up asap and get third party app reinstalled and running. Help please.
