poweredge 1850 raid controller lost cache

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!
