Dell 860 server will not boot

Last Modified: 2016-11-22
This is an old 2003 r2 box with sas 5i controller and raid 5, 3 drives.

I need help resurrecting this box and getting it up and running.  Limited dell support and resources so this is a best effort for a client.

I'm getting a corrupted or missing pci.sys file on boot.

i've ran the dset from dell to see if it was a controller error but not seeing anything.

the raid utility finds the drives and no errors in array ro virt drives.

Please help!
