Server Crash No System State Backup.

Picked up a call where 2003 server crashed and it appears both hard drives are bad. Neither HD 0 or HD 1 can even be recognized by bios, with a Hiren's CD or while slaved. They have data backup from Carbonite but no system state. I am assuming I have to dis-join each desktop and rejoin new domain that gets created. Unless anyone has another way?

I am sorry to hear, but i dont think so you have any option

build new server and re-join all desktop in the domain. even keeping same domain name and ip address will not work.
