Hello Expert, I am having an Issue with a Windows 2012 (Vmware VM).

First I had this error, and I couldn't login with domain users or local users
 First Error
So I have rebooted the server into safe mode, I have unjoined it fron the domain and reboot the server again, and  I was then able to login with the local admin account.

But I had the error below and I fixed it by using the solution in this youtube video (
I have copied the folder from C:\Windows\Users\Default\Desktop and pasted it  in this location C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\
Second Error
And now , I cannot rejoin the server to the domain
 Third Error
I have tried to fix this issue by removing the network card and adding a new one. I also did a flush dns, and I am also able to ping the domain controller,but still not able to join the server to the domain.

Please help me experts
