bl685c G6 major software install issues

Having the following issues with a bl685c G6
-smartstart 8.30 loads up, then dispays a blank screen and becomes unresponsive.
-smartstart 8.25 starts the OS install stage, then reports partition does not exist on disk 0.
-tried direct OS install on windows 2008 64 bit, which was okay with base install, but then after a PSP 8.25 install, gets blue screen. In safe mode, freezes after loading crcdisk.sys

The system has passed all detailed hardware checks on the smartstart CD. It currently has a faulty array battery on the internal disks.

The server is paired with a storageworks SB40c storage blade.

Anyone else had build issues with this type of blade. I have a replacement array battery coming tomorrow.

issues were caused by two faulty DIMMS.
