Answers :

You mention on boot that the server shows a logical drive of 158GB, which obviously means the server is detecting the drives ok.

Quite often Windows doesn't have the correct drivers to support systems using RAID controllers such as IBM ServerRaid, so this is probably why the setup CD states "No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot". When the Windows Setup CD Boots, it should at some point (on the blue screen) at the bottom of the screen state something like "Press F6 to load additional drivers". If you can get the correct drivers from IBM website, and load them by pressing F6, Windows should be able to see the drives ok. Hopefully it will then be able to successfully repair the error.

Netfinity 5600 I have been given an IBM Netfinity 5600 server from a friend, but we can't get it to work. I have installed 4x Seagate cheetah hotswap HDD's, each 36,6GB, and I previously got it to boot past bios, until it searches for a boot sector, which it obviosly cant find, as theres nothing on the disks. But now it wont even boot up with the monitor, and when i press the power button, it begins booting (i think) and then powers off after about 30 secs, to power itself up again after another
