Had trouble with our dell storage server 840 and ran chkdsk after booting from install CD. chkdsk hung so system was restarted and now after booting from install CD says that it can not find any HDD's.
Utilized utility to create a slip streamed OD boot cd, saw the Perc 5i drivers load but same problem.

Any help greate appreciated!!

    Because thewe PERC does not support non-RAID, you MUST configure RAID in the CTRL-R utility before Windows can see a drive, even with the right driver.
