Error on Domain Controller (0xc00002e2) - Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart

I got the below error on my DC after my VMware workstation crashed. 
I have tried safe mode and last known good configuration, and the server restarted to the same blue screen error.  Googled the error and some blogs suggested to remove Active Directory domain services from the DC and reinstall it. Unfortunately, this was my only DC in the lab, and I didn’t have a backup.

Restart the server and select startup settings.

Choose Directory Services Repair Mode from the Advanced options
logged on using the local admin credentials on the DC.  Ran the command prompt as administrator and ran the below command
activate instance ntds
I have received the below error
Could not initialize the Jet engine: Jet Error -501. Failed to open DIT for AD DS/LDS instance NTDS. Error -2147418113
Renamed the .log files located in C:\Windows\ntds and restarted the machine but received the same blue screen with  0xc00002e2 error
Restart the server again in Directory Service Repair mode and ran the command.
esentutl /p "c:\windows\ntds\ntds.dit"
 Restarted the server, and the server boots straight into windows.

Unable to Download Application from Software Center

You might get application status: failed error when trying to install an application from the software center
When you click on the failed link you will get the below error message

The main reason for this error message is that the ccmcache is full or it doesn't have enough space to download the application.

To fix the issue. Go to control panel and open configuration manager.

You can either increase the disk space or click delete the files temporarily stored in the cache.
