@Dan, I have used your answer for installing from the Dell CD, but you have no "Answer" to accept.

I have used Knoppix to recover data from a Vista machine, which can detect HDD and USB drives, I didnt try it in this case, but is Knoppix a similar thing to BartPE or Live Linux...can they detect RAID drives?

I used the Dell install CD and re-installed everything, luckily its just a test machine, any ideas what could cause this?

If I boot normally, all the dos-based messages seem ok, windows loads to a point where you can see the dell desktop image. The machine must be reading the disks at that point?

Server does not boot in safe mode, safe mode with networking, restoring to previously working version or normal.

Does the windows disc have generic RAID/Storage drivers or are vendor specific discs required when pressing F6. Tried that without inserting discs which still did not detect them, not sure if continuing just skips it or tries to use gebneric drivers.

Just tried booting of the Windows Server 2003 disc, if I try the "R" to restore, it cant find the disks and cant continue. Odd since booting normally does show the Dell desktop background (but no login)

No, I did have an issue with installing .Net Frameworks and have recently used the .Net Framework cleaner tool. I was running RDP, rebooted, never came back...
