SBS 2003 Exchange Database won't Mount

I have an old sbs 2003 box that has been running email for ever. The power went out with a bang and now the Exchange is toast.  I have been able to run the eseutil on the database but I still cannot mount it. I can't run the Isinteg as it cannot initiate the verification process.

This is in the application error log;
Error 0xfffffc01 starting Storage Group /DC=local/DC=EganIT/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Exchange/CN=EGANIT/CN=Administrative Groups/CN=first administrative group/CN=Servers/CN=GATEWAY/CN=InformationStore/CN=First Storage Group on the Microsoft Exchange Information Store.
Storage Group - Initialization of Jet failed.

When I try to mount the database I get an error saying an internal processing error had occurred and to restart the services. This makes no difference. It gives an error number C1041724. I would like to get this running if poss.

Check if this helps you fix the problem.

Do you have backup of the database? You might need to restore the database from backup.

Thanks guys. The logs are on a different drive. I had to swap out the drive they were on and they got a different drive letter say S:\Exchange\Logs for instance.
I have gone in and in the properties of Exchange Manger changed this path to the logs folder.

I ran the eseutil /mh;

C:\>eseutil /mh "C:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
