The embedded OS is stored on the RAID data drives - no? (Not a design 
I'm particularly fond of.) So there are any number of things that might 
have happened to the drives that would prevent the OS from booting.

Didn't Federico mention that there were sites with "debrcking" 
instructions? (Probably a disk image you can overwrite your drives with.)

(Too late now, as you've already shipped off the drive, but something to 
consider if there is a next time.)
