HP SmartStart CDs were replaced with Intelligent Provisioning, which is built into your server's hardware so you never have to keep track of those CDs again.

Simply boot up your server, and when you see a screen showing F-key options, you should see "F10 - Intelligent Provisioning" as an option. Hit F10 on your keyboard and that option should change color showing you've successfully chosen it. Follow the on-screen instructions from there.

You can see this in action on an HP-published video here (the actual tutorial starts at about the 1 minute mark):

I hope you'll see this is even easier! Let me know if this helps.
