    I made a backup of a Windows 2003 server with dynamic disks.

    When I try and restore the backup, the server complains that it cannot start the Active Directory.

    I think that Windows has been restored to a basic disk, not a dynamic one.

    Is there an easy way to solve this problem?

    I used True Image 9.1 server for windows to create a full back up of the C: drive.

    I then formated the C: drive using Disk Director Suite.

    I then used the True Image Boot CD to launch the full version of True Image and selected to restore a complete drive. I restored the full backup of the C: created earlier.

    Windows 2003 then appears to start up correctly, but when the log in prompt appears (where it says press ctrl+alt+del) the following message appears:

    "Security accounts manager initialization failed because:
    Directory service cannot start. Error status 0xc00002e1
    Click OK to shutdown and reboot to Directory services Restore mode."

    But when I reboot to restore mode my administrator password is not accepted.
