nls data is missing or corrupt in windows server 2008

I see a lot of help topics centered around Vista and the follwoing error on boot but not many around Windows 2008

Windows failed to load because the NLS data is mission or corrupt

I know the data is there but, I just can get the server to boot no matter what I do. I believe the problem to be related to a corrupt boot volume, but as yet can find the answer.

You are finding loads of Vista articles because Vista and 2008 use the same code :)

Follow the advice here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-system/0xc000000f-windows-failed-to-load-because-the-nls/d4d39c22-62dd-4eec-a3fe-aeeb56d0f10b

Boot with either a Vista or a 2008 Boot DVD, then try each of the three methods posted. Once you get in run a full backup and run some diagnostics on the drive itself to make sure it is healthy.

Thanks,

I've done everything in the article with no successes. I really think this one is a lost cause, there is too much corruption to fix.
We have backups of the data, so I think a replacement drive and a rebuild of the operating system would be the best course of action for this one.
