BL460c loose connection to local disks

We experience the problem that our BL460c occasionaly loose connection to their local physical disks. It occurs randomly on all the blades running windows, causing the systems to crash.
This happens on both of our enclosures.

Our ESX cluster member blades in the same enclosure keep running without any problems.
Probably because all storage is on the SAN and ESX runs completely in memory so the local physical disks are not used once the system is booted.

After the server crashes we reboot the server using ILO cold boot the systems reports that no boot disk is present. Even after several cold boots.
Only solution to boot the system into the OS is to enter the system maintenance menu, and run diagnostics. After this is done the systems boot normally.

All servers received the latest firmwares available.

Does anyone have any ideas/solutions?

Is there any errors regarding the Smart Array controller in server POST ?

There has been few where the controller is changed.
