You've guessed it right, the OS disk should always sits on the lowest slot number.

Fix the arrangement of your disks. Do you have raid configuration in your system?

I don´t have raid configuration.If I change the location of the hard disk,could appear some problem.

I assume this is a non-Smartarray (i.e. using onboard scsi) server.

Try put all the disks back, make sure everything back to normal, power it down, leave disk0 (OS), pull Disk 1 + 2 out (data), and boot it up.

Once it is happy, power it down again, move the OS disk down to the slot0, boot it up, and see if that will boot up normally.
