Hi, we suffered a massive building power surge last night. Three of our four servers booted fine. They all have UPS power.

The one that WON'T boot is our domain controller.  It's stuck on the black "Microsoft Corporation" screen.  Safe modes didn't work, neither did "last known good".

We're desperate. Please help.
