Lsass system error - object not found windows 2003 server vmware

Hello,

   So I am unable to login to my virtual machine. I get the lsass.exe system error - object not found.

  The hard drive was full and I got the all black everything (where colour registry goes to all zeroes) so after fixing that it appeared to work again.

However from vmware I increased the size of the drive, I got a message saying it could not boot because there was not enough space. I lowered the allocated memory and it boots now however I get this lsass.exe error and cannot get to a logon screen.

tried safe mode, with networking, and with command prompt as well as directory services restore (which says both drives are clean) then boots to lsass error

Any help...This is a huge issue as it hosts our timesheets and invoicing

Any other ideas to try??

boot it with live Operating system (Like Ubuntu etc… Bootable CD)
Go to c:\windows\system32\config make a temporary folder there name it Backup

Move below files to Backup Folder
SecEvent
SECURITY
SECURITY.txt
And Restart the computer

You can do this from Recovery Console.

Can't get it to run. It is unable to detect hard drive I believe because they are SATA drives.
I used nlite to add drivers to the disc but it could still not run recovery console

Tried windows 7 disc and it ran the through but said it could not fix startup error when trying the startup repair option on disc

Have you tried scanning the computer for viruses? Try Malwarebytes Antimalware and Combofix from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix. Have you tried restore points?

You may be left with using the Windows disk to perform a repair install or install from scratch.

it really seems like I just need to run a repair on the registry. But I can't get either windows xp or 2003 server (which i'm running) to detect the hard drives

I'm using a dell poweredge R805 Any thoughts on this? Its driving me nuts

If you slipstreamed the drivers then you should be able to use the disc, if not put the drivers on a floppy. If you still cannot see the the drives, see if a fresh install will pull up the drives

I just used the same installation disc and created a new server (fresh install) and it saw the hard drives fine.

No idea why it doesnt see the drives on the other server
