Does your raid contain partitions from your boot disk? If so you will need to boot from the OS disk or another bootable drive.

Repair a Dead SATA Hard Drive
A SATA hard drive is drive that uses the SATA interface standard when sending information to and from the system memory on the computer. Repairing a dead SATA drive might seem impossible, but you owe it to yourself to at least attempt a drive repair before giving up and purchasing a new hard drive. Accomplish this with the disk repair tools in your computer's operating system.

Click the "Start" menu. Type "cmd" in the "Search" box and press & quot;Enter." Type "chkdsk x: /r", substituting "x" for the letter of the supposedly dead SATA drive. Press "Enter" to run the drive diagnostic and repair utility. The computer will attempt to repair and fix the dead areas on your SATA drive.

Sounds like a disk issue. It kind find the OS so it's then trying to PXE boot (boot from the network). Have you changed the boot order recently? or do you have a USB key connected to your server? are you able to connect to the management interface (hp ilo, dell drac) to see if you had any raid or other hardware issues?

Primary Hard Disk Drive 1 not found

It means your hard drive has probably lost it's boot sector.
What you can do is mount the drive as a slave drive in another system, if it locates it, because then it does not have to mount it as an operating sytem and boot, then you can copy your data from it so as not to lose it.

After that, then try running a diagnostic utility to ensure the drive is not damaged. If it shows the drive as OK to use, then try reformatting it and reinstalling the OS. A complete reformat will then write the correct track zero information to make it bootable again.

Usually however with that error depending on the size and type of drive it is toast and may or may not start a limited number of times to recover data to another drive.

You might also find with some SATA drives - turning the machine off and reseating the connections or cables will cause it to work again as they sometimes partially work loose and then the drive is not mountable.

Where can i download raid drivers for my caliber xn9010?

The driver you need is based on your raid controller on your motherboard or if you have one your raid card, so you need to determine the motherboard manufacturer or raid card manufacturer and get the chipset drivers from their website.
