I just took on a new client with major problems. The most pressing issue: They are running a Dell PowerEdge T610 (Service Tag: 79F9WL1), server 2008 R2, physical (not virtualized). The prior IT firm did something to the server that after a reboot the error BOOTMGR is missing.  There are 50+ workers unable to work right now. UGH!!!!

There are no backups whatsoever, of anything.

I am attempting to boot the server using a Windows Server 2008 R2 install DVD and run repair, however, the boot media doesn't see any hard drives because they are connected to a Dell PERC 6/i SAS RAID Controller. I have looked at all available downloads from the Dell support page for the specific server, however, I can't find any drivers to load. I did find one driver set - http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=M4F88 - but it isn't working. Can any body point me to the correct drivers?

@PowerEdgeTech - Thanks for the insight. My install media doesn't have SP1. Do you know where I can download the ISO for Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Server 2008 R2 SP2?

Thanks to everyone who posted responses; it is greatly appreciated. Turns out the controller was going bad so I had to replace it.
