Did the system work fine before?
How many drives do have on the system?
Have you checked if the drives are found in the raid oprom bios? What is the status of the raid?
Are you using any raid controller card? Is it on the list?
Before continuing and downloading any bios recovery file, make sure that you have identified your board correctly.
Check from this link: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/cs-021067.htm
Make sure to use drives that are on the tested list:
Now regarding your problem, the system is booting on the cd and bios etc, which means it is working fine.
It could be due to several reasons for the system not booting on the OS drives. MBR may be corrupted, all drives raid are failed etc.
If you think that MBR is corrupted, there are several tools that allow you to fix this.
Check power supply and power connections.
Check cables for proper installation, type, and length.
Check cable routing, reseat cable connectors.
Replace if faulty.
Review the firmware versions for the hard drive - check if there is any new firware revision on the particular drive's website
Update board firmware to the latest revisions, if you are using raid controller, make sure it has up-to-date firmware.
Note: If the drives are shown as failed, do not re-use a failed drive.
When using raid, it is always advisable to have same model of drives with the same firmware revision.
All the best,
