If the feeling is that the server crashed 'hard' then I would start first before anything else, by checking the RAID array status in the management utility and running chkdsk /c:

If those come back clean then you may want to try reinstalling the SBS Console as per: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg680337.aspx

RAID is fine, I had already tried the reinstall of the SBS per the technet article with no success

Setting aside the Console errors for the moment, which automatic services are failing to start in services.msc and what's the reason given for failure in the system event log?

IS your problem just with the SBS console or do you have other problems as well?

And can we expand upon the 'nothing works (email, IIS, console)' please?
Presumably the server boots and you can log in OK, so some things work.  Can you access file shares  on \\127.0.0.1?  From a client?  RDP?  Do you receive any error message when it boots?  Can you access the EMC?  Telnet on 25?  What happens when you try and launch the IIS 7.0 Management Console?

Exchange - Down
Event Viewer - requires separate program to view (MMC unable to launch)
IIS - WWP will not start (error 1068 - the dependency service or group failed to start)
Can't get to ServerManager - MMC snap in unable to launch

I can login, AD seems fine, GPO seems fine, can access all shares, RDP fine,

All your errors that you're offering so far are dot net 4 errors, hence you could try repairing dot net framework extended and dot net framework client profile from the Add / Remove Programs applet.  (right-click > Uninstall or change > repair to original state)

OK, scrap the dot net repair.

IIS - WWP will not start (error 1068 - the dependency service or group failed to start)

W3svc dependency services: Windows Process Activation Service

Open services.msc and try to start the Windows Process Activation Service, or, from an elevated command prompt:  'sc query was' and then 'sc start was'.  See what errors you get.  If no errors crack on with 'sc start w3svc'

If I edit the config for console and choose false for update services it will let me in the console safe mode only.

Most errors seem to be:
 System.BadImageFormatException

Hi David,

OK, so we can't start the was service.  Now open the event viewer and look for the enrtry explaining why the was service won't start.

I think you should probably worry a little less about the console right now - the wizards will clean up later, but at the moment you have core SBS services that won't start.  There is likely to be a root cause for this, and you should be able to determine/fix it by examining the event logs and methodically working to get all automatic start services up and running.

Try starting the was service and then post the error you generate in the system event log.

Hi David,

I've done a bit of checking on this problem.

Can you check your applicationhost.config  file and possibly try the solution posted here: http://darrylclark.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/iis-will-not-start-problems.html

Cheers,
BlueCompute

After talking to Microsoft and Dell they were both unable to come up with a solution and said the OS got corrupted.
