Sever 2008 Standard wont boot - missing hal.dll

I have a Server2008 standard that wont boot into Windows.  It says hal.dll is missing, however, i think the issue is bigger than that.  When I insert the 2008 standard cd and run repair it says it cant find any disks, same if i go to command prompt and use diskpart list disk or list volume.

If I put a 2008 R2 disk in and run the install it sees the C drive that has two partitions on it.  So the disk are there, the data is still there.

I tried to reinstall the drivers, but they couldnt be found either on the install media or the installed os on the server.

Ant ideas?
