there is a services hanging, if you reboot in safe mode can you check the event logs.

if you are ok with safe mode try latest service pack, however after login scree if your getting BSOD or blank screen , possible cause may be login.exe corruption.

seems it's s/w issue, nevertheless remember for dell machine almost all the problem is vanishing after updating the BIOS, so you may consider for the same also.

Your pretty much going to have to do a repair install now unfortunatley. This will involve popping in the server 2003 standard cd, booting to it and doing a repair install. Then apply the latest service pack again. Sorry.

Put in cd, goes through loading evrything then reports no drive found?

rabindrajhaCommented:
is your drive encrypted? possible cause for the scenario is file-format corruption. In addition to this I will suggest if you can retrieve the data, it'll be better. bcoz very soon file format will be getting corrupted on your drive.

as well as i will ask whether raid is configured for the drive? if not connect the hdd to other system and retrive the data. you might have to format the disk.

during the boot process it ask if there are any 3rd party drivers, i think its F3 or F5 (, at this point you will need to insert a floppy with the raid cards driver.This will help it find the drives.

This is going to be a mjot pain for you sorry!
