SBS 2008 Migration Failed - how do I continue after fixing problems

I had a failed migration - could not dcpromo the new SBS 2008 server due to previous migration failure.  I fixed the issues with AD on the source SBS 2003 server, but I don't see a means to "restart" or "continue" the migration on the SBS 2008 server.

Do I have to boot from the SBS 2008 disc again?  Will that force a format/reinstall of the entire OS?  I have the answer file on the floppy and the disc available to the OS, but it boots right to the desktop and is not a member of the source domain.


(FYI - I did the migration in a virtual environment with virtual snapshots of the live server until I could run through without errors, then of course the live run in the live environment came up with a new error!!  UGH!!)
