It seems like the whole box

It seems like the whole box crashed this morning: 

31/08/2017 04:33:46 UTC+1

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

That caused SWAT 4 SAS mod server not to start automatically which I manually started this evening at 2025 UTC.

Server box is running again.

Server box is running again.

I think the issue was ISP related, as any of my servers / switches / router has been turned off.

Possible interruption in service

Due to bad weather in Denmark, my parents house is once more inches away from getting flooded.

Even though their house remains dry, power outs may occur from now and the next 24 hours. This means that all game servers + TS might be unstable or unavailable for the next 24 hours.

I destroyed the server

I destroyed the server instead, so I had to use my backup server.

Will postpone this till I have a new computer.

I shut the server down, put

I shut the server down, put an extra SSD into it and wanted to boot. I managed to access BIOS and activate raid, but when I needed to configure RAID, I couldn't even boot into BIOS. Only a few times after many restarts, I could access BIOS, but when I restarted again, no luck. Luckily I had a similar computer so I could just move the SSD to the new computer and restore the server that way.

Reminds me of another laptop I was fiddling around with at work today. Now it won't boot either. No BIOS at all. Perhaps I shouldn't touch computers anymore Blum 3

Yes, I did. I managed to get into the BIOS again. I needed to restart again in order to click CTRL+I to configure RAID. However, upon restart nothing happened. I could hear/see the computer i starting, but no BIOS post.
