Server 2008 System Recovery Option Stuck

I have built a new Windows Server 2008 R2 X64 server on an HP Proliant DL380 G4 server.  When I tried to install a Sata Raid controller for an external HDD, I got a system halt.  I removed the Sata Controller, but now when Windows boots, it gives me a System Recovery Option dialog box and wants a recovery disk.  This is a brand new server and I don't have a recovery disk made yet.  At one point I was able to get the server to boot using Last Know Good.  I removed the offending driver and rebooted, but got the System Recovery option again.  This time it won't let me past it with a Last know good or safe mode.  Is it doomed to just have to be rebuilt from scratch?

Since this is a new install and haven't done anything else with it, I'd say start over.  Why not have the raid controller installed during the Windows install and see how that works.

You might need to get latest Windows drivers from the manufacturer's site.
