Upgrading Raid 5 Disks

I have just upgraded 3x9GB Raid 5 disks on a netserver LC3 to 3x36GB disks. I re-initialized the raid settings, re-installed windows 2000 server and restored data from tape drive. Unfortunately there was some data missing from the tape, which I am trying to retrieve from the old hard disks. I have re-installed the old hard disks, deleted the NVram on the scsi controller and recreated from the scrtach pad on the hard drives. When I turn the machine on the scsi setup is validated, but after the POST, I just get a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left. I am now guessing that somehow the scsi cant find the operating system. Any ides?

I've run into the blinking cursor before and clearing the CMOS has helped.
