    Try booting by escaping to the loader prompt and booting into verbose mode with:
    Code:
    boot -v

    Or booting with ACPI disabled.

    Are you sure that RAID controller is supported? Some servers have option
    to present hard drives as directly attached or via RAID. Try disabling RAID and then booting.
