Booting BL465 from Smartstart on USB

I've tried v7.70 and v7.80 by making a usb key via the HP USB key utility. I'm booting from the key plugged into the dongle from the front of the blade. The key boots but stops after displaying 'Loading Drivers Done ' on the screen. Has anyone booted from USB key before on the blades?
Thanks,
Eric

I have a 1GB USB key. It's weird because the key boots initially but stops as its loading the linux boot files.... I never get a GUI screen.
