exchange 2007 dirty shudown

I have an SBS 2008 server that lost power and shutdown. Exchange did not come back. I ran ese /p and that did not fix it.

I went to restore from before the crash and found over 100 gig of log files. Evidently this was not backed up in a long time.

I restored the database but not the log files due to the time it will take. They don't care if they lose a couple emails.  I try to mount the database and it does not mount

I ran ese /mh and it shows dirty shutdown.

How do I get around this without restoring all the log files?

eseutil /p should be able to repair the DB

I am running that now but it seems to be stuck at Deleting unicode fixup table. The first two scans ran quick but this one has not moved at all yet
It is going on please wait...
What is the database size?

Once the repair is completed, run eseutit /d.

Then check the status running eseutil /mh and verify it should be clean shutdown.
then mount the database.
