Sharepoint 2.0 on SBS 2003 problem after demote

Last Modified: 2015-12-15
i have recently done migration from sbs2003 to 2012r2 with this guide:

everything went well, but today customer asked why Lists are not working on old box.

I didnt migrate sahrepoin bcs plan was that new one will be build from scratch and in test enviroment SP 2.0 worked on demoted SBS but of course no one chekced Lists.

My real problem is how to mek them work again, messagae when trying to acces it is:
" Cannot connect to the server at this time. You can continue working with this list, but some data may not be availeble."

Than you can switch to standard mode and all date can be seen, in datasheet mode not all data is shown.

in SQL Server service manager database MICROSOFT###SSEE is stopped and cannot be started!

system event:
Event id: 7024 The Windows Internal Database (MICROSOFT##SSEE) service terminated with service-specific error 3417 (0xD59).

application event:
event id: 17207 The description for Event ID ( 17207 ) in Source ( MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: FCB::Open; 5(error not found); C:\WINDOWS\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\DATA\mastlog.ldf.
