Try booting by escaping to the loader prompt and booting into verbose mode with:
Code: Select all
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.
