This may sound adequate but this seems a good solution. Fresh re-installation of your server 2008 on a different HDD especially not being able to boot safe mode and last config…This may help you identified and eliminate your problem between software and hardware counterfeit..

    Does your server have a RAID controller that you can access during startup? If so I would start there to see if it can detect the drives. Also if available try putting the drives into another server to see if that machine can see it. If it can you are likely looking at a bad array controller.
