ML370 with SmartArray 5300 - won't boot
 
We have a Compaq Proliant ML370 with the SmartArray 5300 - 5 drives fitted;

- first two logical drive C (Windows 2000 Server system drive) in Raid 1
configuration,
- second three logical drive D in RAID 5

Yesterday we did a Windows Update and restarted the server. It never came
back up. It displays the memory check, shows the processors, then displays
'no SCSI devices detected' and then 'No System disk or disk error'

Help! This is the Exchange server for the whole company. Any clue to what
might be the culprit? The SmartArray controller perhaps? If it's replaced,
would the array configuration (and the data on those disks) be preserved?

Any advice greatly appreciated!

Regards
Mark
