Could it possibly be a hardware failure (from powerhit) test the power supply with a power supply tester or swap with a known good power supply. The server only needs cpu, ram, video to post. so you could disconnect everything else including the drives to test.  Also at what point does it reboot and is it at the same place during startup or is it random??
