dell t105 server wont boot after farstone install - win boot manager failed to start \boot\bcd status 0xc000000f

a production dell t105 server w/ 2003 on it (mirror drives), installed Farstone product on it and it needed a reboot. upon reboot i get the WINDOWS FAILED TO START. A RECENT HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE CHANGE MIGHTT BE THE CAUSE - TO FIX....   FILE \BOOT\BCD      STATUS : 0XC00000F  AN ERROR OCCURED WHILE ATTEMPTING TO READ THE BOOT CONFIGURATION DATA.

i ran a PE disc and I see that there is a bootloader from that software on there...  so how can i get rid of this issue - that error is usually seen in win 2008 or 7.

Farstone's boot loader is the culprit.    Help!

Grab the original OS CD, boot to the recovery console, then run FIXMBR and FIXBOOT. These will replace the bootloader with the orignal WIndows one.
