Server crashed on me, when I try to boot it gets stuck here for around 10 minutes "Initializing firmware interfaces and then gives me a "A system restart is required"
will not go pass
Can't use F8, I do have a bootable CD that I will try, I also notice that one o the hard drives has no light; I'm pretty sure this drive is part of my RAID where the O.S. is installeddrive no light
any suggestions are apricated

I do have a backup and I'm downloading my data onto a diff. server with an ETA of 16 hours
