SmartStart installation problem


Trying to install Windows2k3 x64 on a BL465c.
It sees the SAN boot disk but has been at "Preparing drive for OS installation..." for hours.
This should take a few mins so i dont know why this is happening. ive tried to restart the process but same result.
iLO 1.60
OA firmware 2.25
HBA firmware latest.
Smartstart CD 8.10 (latest)

Any ideas?
