After a windows update and a reboot, my server (running Server 2008 r2) will no longer boot in to the OS.
it will only boot in to the Recovery console screen.

I have tried StartRep.exe but it completes with no errors.
I have also tired SFC but again with no joy.

Does anyone know how i can repair my server without doing a clean install?
