my server 2008 r2 had an abrupt power outage (user error).
i get a blue screen that says "STOP: c00002e2 Directory Services could not start because of the following error: A device attached to the system is not functioning. - Error Status: 0xc0000001"
I can't go into safe mode, last known good config, nothing! and i don't know the dam* AD restore password. I can login load the perc 100 drivers (raid 1) and see the files on the OS.
any ideas? this is drive me crazy.
btw: if i go to AD restore mode, i can get to the login screen but i don't know the pw.
