HP ML350 G1 Wont Boot

Hello experts!

I have an HP ML350 G1 that as of this morning will not boot. It begins its normal post process then stops at a screen that says the following:

<<< Press <F8> for Multi Initiator Configuration! >>

Slot Port ID LUN Vendor     Product         Sync      Bus      HD#
 00    1    0    0

Here is what I know about the system:

I believe it was booting into a Raid 5

The lights on the front of the drives light up with the exception of the first hard drive.

I've attached a picture of the screen it is hanging on.

This is a critical server so any help is greatly appreciated.

It seems like your SCSI controller may be having issues.  It isn't even scanning your drives yet.
