Proliant DL380 G7 wont boot from HDD

Good afternoon, 

I have searched the forums here for this problem and I found a few others with similar issues. 

My DL380 doesnt attempt to boot from C: it just skips to NIC booting and then fails. 

Have looked in BIOS and I see the Smart Array Controller listed as controller 1 and I can watch post messages and the controller initilizes and states 1 logical drive found. 

I bunch of PCI embedded devices use IRQ 10 including the controller, is this normal? 

Then "drives that were previously unavailble appear available again. 

Press F1 or F2

I am thinking I have controller issues but it appears the system recognizes the controller. 

Any thing else I should check? Of course this is a domain controller and one of my locations!

Check your 'Boot order' in the BIOS., and make sure that it is set to Hard Drive C.
