  • Hello,

    check out the following way:

    You can boot to the Windows Server 2008 and choose the repair in the lower left hand corner of the screen.  this should open a CMD prompt.
    From here you can run sfc and use the offline options,
    /OFFBOOTDIR     For offline repair specify the location of the offline boot directory
    /OFFWINDIR      For offline repair specify the location of the offline windows directory
