I'm having an issue where we cannot get any repair methods to work at all. We had a RAID 5 failure with Disk 1 failing and Disk 0 forcing itself offline. I forced Disk 0 online and then replaced Disk 1 with a new disk and allowed it to rebuild. However, the OS (Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter) became corrupted. Anytime I load the OS, I get a Boot Data Configuration error 0x00000f

I tried running all sorts of bcdedit and bcdboot style commands to try to fix the boot files. via cmd line with the recovery DVD. Literally, nothing we tried working. It became a frustrating experience.

We turned to DPM 1801 which has a System State backup. We wanted to restore with that. However the wbadmin start systemstaterecovery didn't work because "its not supported in WinRE environment". If I try wbadmin start sysrecovery, it tells me it can't find the backup. Do I have to blow up the OS, re-install the OS, and then run the restore? Sounds redundant.
