Windows services not starting after Windows update on SBS 2008

Whilst attempting to install Kaspersky Security Centre 10 on a SBS '08 server, the server was automatically prompted to shutdown. (Windows Installer 4.5, SQL 2008 lite, some hotfixes and updates were installed by the process)

Upon restarting, the server remained stuck at "Step 3 of 3 .... Configuring ... 0%

I then restarted it manually and this time it loads windows ok, however main services such as DNS, DHCP, and many more and not starting. If I try to start them manually, nothing happens.

I cant access network connections, so no internet access.

I have tried starting in Safe Mode to no avail.

Please help
