Windows 2012 R2 server DC will not boot and gives a BSOD with error 0xc00002e2
We have found that this was actually due to booting the system was making the wrong volume C:
We eventually had to remove every other disk from the VM and boot as a Gen1 VM
Once the drive letter was corrected to C; the Windows/NTDS folder was located correctly and the system booted OK.

We just did 'last known good configuration' and it let us in, but it still rebooted as D:\ afterwards.
Presumably this re-assigned the C: drive???
So we had to log in under 'directory restore mode' and use regedit.exe to make some changes:
We then got a BSOD with 'driver unloaded without cancelling pending operation'
We then just reset the system - cold reset - and the system started up as expected in normal mode with the correct system drive letter = yay!!! 🖐
Boot was slow at first boot - 20 minutes or so 😣 - but then the system started to behave. =d>
