0x00000124 Unrecoverable hardware error on Windows Server 2008 (X64)

I rebooted one of our servers today after a batch of MS updates and it blue screened with '0x00000124 Unrecoverable hardware error '.  Whenever I boot, it blue screens with the same error but will boot into safe mode ok.

I have tried:

Running a memory check, all fine.

Removed USB, VGA, NIC drivers and rebooted, same error.

I've also run an attempted repair from the Server 2008, no joy.

Last known good, wont boot either.

We haven't installed any new hardware on this server, so this is all a bit strange.

I tried system restore from the Windows DVD and it said there were no recovery points.

Any ideas how to get this up and running?

System setup:

Dell SC1425 with 10gb RAM
3Ware 4500SX RAID card with 2 X 1TB disks (mirrored) RAID array appears fine in the RAID BIOS.
Windows Server 2008 X64

I found this post on the subject...

Have  a look at reseting your CMOS/BIOS to default. Maybe consider a firmware upgrade.

dvt_localboy: article doesn't seem to be relevant to my situation, I'll have a crack at BIOS defaults after I have finished dragging data off the server via safe mode / USB disk....if you mean BIOS update, it's at V3, which is current.

shibu81: Link no 1 does not apply becasue I can't install a hotfix in safe mode as the installer service is not running, last article not relevant but I'll look into the others.

Thanks guys...
