I have a dell poweredge 1850 that has been unplugged for a long period of time.  when i tried to boot the server today I pressed the function key to continue after being notified that the cache data would be lost because the battery was not funcitoning correctly on the raid card.  Now when booting i get no boot device available.  I am at a loss this is a test server so i may just end up rebuilding it but i would like to save hours of work and get this working again.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Boot to the BIOS Setup (F2), Integrated Devices, and enable Embedded RAID, then boot up, ignoring the scary "data loss" message.
