"No SCSI Boot Device Found" for Windows 2k on Dell PowerEdge 6300 Server

After I updated Windows via the auto-update feature for Windows 2000 it asked me to restart the server.  I did so and now the server will not boot up.
There were no hardware changes, just ran Windows Update

The error messages are as follows:
-----------------------------------------------------
Waiting for Array Controller #0 to starts....
Fatal Error: Controller Kernel self test failed
<< Press any key to continue ... >>

I assume the system was working fine before update, and there are couple of failed items that message you wrote about, and likely they are still in POST testing. How about the BIOS version? is it up-to-date version?

yes, it's been working fine for a year or two right before the update and restart.

No, I did not update the BIOS.

I'll try to update the BIOS but if that doesn't work, i'll have to try this:

I had many issues with using windows automatic update here as well, so I always backed up everything before MANUAL (not automatic) update on any older version OS than XP. Good luck ITBee.

It sounds like you need to reset your boot device order in CMOS after the battery replacement.

Everyone gets an assisted Answer for their effort.

I wasn't able to figure out what is actually causing the problem today, but now it's in the hands of Dell.

I'll let you guys know what they replaced.
