Booting into the Windows recovery console.

If you never installed a partition on your server with the Windows Recovery Console and your server failed – it is not too late!

You can still get to the recovery console by booting to the installation disk of Windows 2003 or 2008 and attempting a “Repair.”

From in here you can also repair the boot sector, run a check disk and much more. So keep your installation disk handy!
