VMWare ESXi boot problem

Hi, I have a Dell PE R520 server that has been running ESXi 5.1 for 18 months with no issues until today.  Basically, the machine will not boot but fails at different stages.  First reboot showed the hypervisor recovery, then Loading VMWare hypervisor. It hung there for about 20 minutes then failed: /ohci_usb.v00: file not found.  I brought the machine back to my office and on reboot gave:
loading VMWare ESXi (so it got further than the first time) very slowly loaded files until it failed with: error loading /ata_pata.vo3 fatal error.

I would appreciate help with this.  The machine is hosting 7 virtual server which I really do not want to lose.

Thanks very much, Rod
