Blinking cursor on boot of Server 2008

We had an issue with a Dell Perc S200 raid controller which caused the raid array to fail.  We have managed to recover the partitions and put on the the disk.  When booting we get a blinking cursor on a blank screen.  We have gone into the recover console and run
bootrec /fixmbr,   then bootrec /fixboot,  bootrec /rebuildbcd.   This is all successful but it still does the same.
We then did a bcdedit c:\windows to point to the os - again the same.

Lasting we went into X:\sources\recovery\startuprep.  But  still the same issue.

Any suggestions on next steps?
