Dell Servier HDD out

Running Citrix Xenserver

My school network stopped working and the message on the front of the case is saying there is a drive fault.  I tried to run the systems diagnostic utility and got a message saying the diagnostics platform is empty.  When I tried to update the platform I got a message saying the network is not configured.

I believe the HD that the message referenced is toast... am I right or are there other things I need to check on first?
