Our Dell server suddenly has a corrupt partition table and isn't booting correctly.  The Dell rep said it could be from our server room overheating two weeks ago and the system rebooting.  My boss does not think this is possible and I haven't been able to find a list of reasons why a table would even become corrupt other than using paritioning software... which we have not.  It is a Windows 2003 Standard Server
