Recovery after replacing the motherboard

We had a problem with our Dell shutting down and reseting  randomly.  Dell replaced the motherboard but now we don't see any of the virtual machines that we set up.  I thought all the xenserver info would be saved on the hard drives and don't understand why we can't see them.  

Is there a way to recover the information that should be there on the hard drives?
Are there steps I have to take to make the server see the vm's that were there before the motherboard was replaced?

We are running a Dell Poweredge with Xenserver and Xcalibur software to manage the vm's.

Did they replace the Raid card too, because your raid cards might have had some information that you need to recreate.

there was no mention of the raid card being replaced.  Is replacing the Raid card standard when you replace the motherboard?

Let's say they didn't replace the Raid card ... is there a way to recover the work we did setting up the vm's
is there a raid card or is the raid on the motherboard ?

do you have the mobo name / number?

can you boot into xenserver ?

can you see the disks in xensevrer ?
