Really need help with this one

My HP T500 SERVER for the last several weeks has been crashing during scheduled reboots and I am not sure whats wrong. Pls see below:

The script showed the following:

-- I/O hardware probe timed out at path 0/52.6.4
nh System Panic:

Also when I looked at the error messages I only saw the following:

BCRITICAL LOG

Re: server keep crashing during reboot

Robert,
the i/o timeout is a starting point.
Check all your cables and terminators.
Interrupt boot up at the 10sec stage and confirm the primary and secondary boot paths.
Go into the GSP (cntl+b) and check for any recent errors.

Are any of your i/o cards flashing red LED?
If all else fails use the CD to boot and scan the config for i/o errors.

Keep us informed of what you find.

Re: server keep crashing during reboot

Robert is this still a problem?
If not can you please identify the solution and close.
Thanks

Re: server keep crashing during reboot

Peter Godron, sorry for the late reply back I've been on vacation the last two weeks. When I left the problem had not been resolved I need to check with my back up system's analyst. Give me a copy of days to get caught up.
Thx
