I need a bootable CD/DVD to determine the drive order of a failed RAID 5 array on a HP DL 380 G3

I have an HP DL380 G3 with the Smart Array 5i controller. Someone removed the drives from the server, and didn't keep track of what order they were in. There were 4 drives in Raid 5, possibly with a Hot-spare, but possibly not (no idea).
I need a bootable cd/dvd that will help me determine what order the drives are supposed to be in so i can get the data off of these disks.
The backup files are corrupt and only have 20 out of 140GB of data that is usable. This is critical to say the least.
Note: This server was set to be decommissioned next week, and i have a 2012 File Server waiting to receive the data.
