Question about IBM eServer xSeries 346
SOURCE: xseries 346 wont boot
You don't say whether or not your os is on the RAID 5 partition. Assuming that it is (for performance reasons, this is not recommended) then you should check to see if you have the option of configuring a separate raid configuration on your raid card (e.g. do you have a card with more then one RAID channel?) If this is so, I would create a separate RAID 1 array and install the OS just on that. Then you can mount the RAID 5 array with your data intact. Once you're up and running, you can remove the old OS partition, as it's no longer needed.

While running the windows 2003 setup (winnt.exe), it will ask for SASI driver, you have to add the scsi driver... then windows 2003 os will detect the HDD.. then it will install..

It appears you may have a failed "physical" drive in your Raid set on the server.
The system will run fine with one failed drive, but it is recommended to have the drive replaced by it's vendor, or vendor representative.
If the 2nd drive in your raid set fails. You will loose your logical drive and all your data on this drive.
You may wish to confirm you have successful, recent backups, just in case another disk fails before your failed drive has been replaced.
