    What OS are you using? It may be possible to edit the fstab to remove the removed-drive entry. Of course, if part of the OS was on that drive...

    You need to put the drive back in the server and once it boots remove the line in

    /etc/fstab that mounts that drive.

    however if any partition besides the /home partition is located on that drive you may still have issues with the server booting

    Can you even get to a kernel screen? If so, hit e and edit the kernel line and add single at the end to boot into single user mode.

    If you can get this far, pico /etc/fstab and whatever HD you removed, just add a # to the beginning of that line, so it wont be processed. Or you can change the flags at the end from 1 1 to 0 0 so it's not required to boot. But the first would be cleaner. Just a thought.
