Also you can run the /m:RecoverServer setup:

Setup /m:RecoverServer

For that here is MS KB: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876880%28v=exchg.141%29.aspx

since you still have the database disks as you say reinstall windows with the same version and SP level as the old one name it as the old server name was

install exchange in RecoverServer mode (read this it still applies to 2010 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998656.aspx)

after you do this all config will be restored from AD, just remap drive D: to the same drive letter as it was and all should be up and running

Thank you, this was the best scenario. We followed this option through to a new VM, and worked wonderful. Thank you
