New BL460C Blades and Smartstart v8.15b

Brand new blades, I want to run SmartStart to perform HP diagnostics (as part of hardware validation / burn-in process). Blade will boot off of the CD but after the SmartStart load screen, when it gets to 100%, I get a black screen and no further activity.

This behavior on 2 brand new blades. I've tried older copies of Smartstart with same results. I have burned multiple copies of SmartStart 8.15b - same results. Multiple CD drives - same results. Other bootable CDs work just fine.

Anyone have any ideas on what to try next?

Smartstart 8.20 is out now. Perhaps try that.
