I have a hp proliant 320s with 12 250GB SATA drives running raid5 that became unresponsive. This is running MS 2003 storage server.  I did a cold repoot and the first 2 drives flashed as if the raid array was rebuilding and the other 10 drives were solid green.  After about a half hour the first 2 drives became solid green and the last 10 are all flashing.  This has been going on for over 15 hours.  I can't get into the machine or even watch it go thru POST.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Get into the RAID controller during the boot up process and see what it is reporting.
What is the state of the RAID setup?

I found the solution myself.  The mother board went bad.  I replaced the MB, entered the SN and Procuct ID into the BIOS and the server came back.
This issue is closed by me.

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
