Have you checked that the container is created and initialized? Once you create your raid container you have to initialize the drive; at least on Dell 2850's that is how it works.
Please note, I had a Dell 1450 that if you initialized the drives it wiped out the container. I got the same error you are getting. So, it is not real consistant. But before you exit the scsi setup screen do a view containers. If the container is present at that point I've never had a problem loading the OS.
You probably already know this, but just in case .....I'm talking about the drive setup screens that you get to by hitting 'contol m' during boot up. The old 1450 uses 'control a' to enter this setup area.
