    security accounts manager initialization failed when repair install

    Our server crashed last night and needed a repair install (Told us to repair a file using repair install). We get to the part where active directory services trays to start and then we get the following message: box

    Isass.exe - System Error
    Security accounts manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start:
    Error Status: 0xc00002e1: Please click OK to shutdown the system. You can use the recovery console to diagnose the system further.

    What can I do to continue the repair install and get this server to work?

    Thanks.
