STOP c0000135 & Exchange Recovery & SID

By Koan Me ·
Problem: one NT 4 Server as PDC and Exchange Server (no BDC's for this domain). The Hard Drive started to die.

I was able to copy valuable data across the network (including Exchange Databases).

Now the Server will not boot. It gets to the blue screen (kernel initialization) and device driver loading, and then

"STOP error: c0000135 {Unable to Locate DLL}
The dynamic link library winsrv could not be found in the specified path Default Load Path"

I DID see KB Article I Q173309, but none of the symptoms they describe applies to my situation.

I've tried restoring from backup, repairing with the ERD, and loading the last known good, but I keep getting the same error.

What I NEED to do is get my Exchange data back. Does this requires a PDC with the same SID as before? If I reinstall over the non-functioning restored files, will I get the same SID? Or am I wrong about Exchange requiring the same SID?

Please throw me any ideas you have....
