RAID 10 won't boot - no config?

Posted on 2011-10-09

I have a Dell poweredge 610 with a 6 disk RAID 10 config.  I came in today and it was down - power outage or something i guess.  So it's sitting at "Foreign configurations found on adapter.  press any key to continue or load the configuration utility or F to import the foreign configs and continue.  

There are offline or missing virtual disks with preserved cache.  Please check the cables and ensure that all drivers are present.  

I have tried to import the config through the utility and it fails to import.  I don't know the exact way it was setup by dell to try and rebuild the array exactly the same (without initializing) to try and recover the data.  

Anyone have any suggestions?

    If I try to edit the config - it just says "configuration is not allowed! error code : unknown"

    Cleared the preserved cache and restored from a bare metal backup.
