SunFire X4150 (RAID-10) does not boot after RHEL v5 installation

Hi All,
I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my problem. Also I'm new to this forum & Linux. Sorry if I'm in the wrong thread.

I have purchased Sun Fire X4150 with the following config:
- Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5440 2.83GHz
- 4Gb RAM
- 4 x 146Gb SAS HDD
- RAID-10 installed

I tried to install RHEL v5 onto this server. After selecting the default partitioning & successfully selected all the default packages, its time to reboot. However upon reboot, the server is unable to detect the RHEL OS. The message that was displayed is:

Reboot and Select proper Boot device.
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

I've also tried to do custom partitioning. I removed all the existing partition and created as follows:
- /boot 500Mb ext3
- /swap 8000Mb ext3
- / ext3 (rest of partition)

But when finished installing all the packages & upon rebooting, still get the same message above.

As for the RAID-10, during bootup, I can see that its successfully started up with no errors.

Can anyone advise me on this?
