You need to start it in Safe Mode with Networking or none of the network drivers are loaded and you will get that problem.

If the files are encrypted you'll also need to save the encryption keys by following the directions here

It's very important that you don't reload the system without saving the Encryption Keys particularly if you don't have a Working Clone of the Boot Drive.
