Dell Poweredge 4600 - No boot device available

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a Dell PE 4600 with an AIC-7899 SCSI controller.  I just replaced the battery on the server because it was bad.  When I boot the computer up, it states that 'No boot device available.  I went into the setup and set the time and boot sequence, but still no luck.  
Under the 'Integrated Devices' section it is set to 'SCSI Enabled'.  Do I need to change this to 'Raid'?  I tried that, and during reboot, it stated that data loss will occur, so I canceled and set it back to SCSI Enabled.

Any help would be appreciated!
