Thanks for the input from several people, currently the CD does not want to boot 
but looks like there maybe other ways, time for me to search and do some 

Thanks for peoples input so far, gives me some direction.

Kind Regards

Can you boot off the CD? Search forums for live openmanage (I think it's
Centos or Fedora).
Or use DLT... which is bootable and very small :)

I have tried to enter setup to disable raid but I cannot enter the setup
Does anyone know if there is a way to get past this on POST or anyway to
the RAID card.

In fact any ideas are welcome at the moment.

I just updated the driver for the Raid controller as OSM was telling me
driver was out of date. I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux on a Dell

2850 and everything seemed fine up to this point.

I cannot access the raid controller using <CTRL>M or any other function

I am guessing to make myself a bootable Linux disk with the
RAID_Driver.bin on 
it and trying again that way.

Any tips or clues of how to get myself out of this?
