I have read this but was no help. I put a different hard drive in and had the same results. It sees the hard drive as the first drive/only drive in the list. It boots fine now that I have disabled the other ports.
The server is plugged into a UPS. I have seen BIOS firmware get messed up when there are variations in power or spikes, but I have to admit, its been a long time since I have seen that. I guess I should break down and call Dell and ask them.
