Here are the details:

Server: PowerEdge 2650, with a PERC 3/Di RAID controller, Linux 7.2

What happened:
Files (not sure how many) were deleted from the /dev directory.  After
performing a reboot, received a message saying that the "console failed to
initialize".  The server was locked up at that point.

What I'm trying to do:
Tried to perform a Linux Rescue, but the RAID controller is not being found.

Is there a way to get the Linux Rescue to ask for controller drivers/module

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
