SBS2008 running virtual won't start!!!

I have a server running Hyper V hosting a single virtual machine.
This is a Server 2008 Standard SP2 64bit
This vm is running SBS2008.

After a restart of the host server the VM will not start up telling me to try to repair the SBS installation.
How do I troubleshoot this!!

A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Please shutdown this system and reboot into directory

This was because of physical harddrive failures on the host server.
