MAPS Win2K8 and SmartStart

Having some trouble trying to install Action Pack Win2K8 32bit & 64bit DVD (both versions, single DVD) using SmartStart v8.0 x64. It doesn't like the DVD when it asks to insert Win2K8 media during install process. I can use MSDN Win2K8 x64 DVD (single version on DVD) and SmartStart sees the OS files fine.

My main concern, I don't want to use the MSDN media. Any ideas or am I going to have to install Win2K8 first and install PSP later once in OS? I'm guessing SmartStart does not like seeing both versions on a DVD. Not sure if this is a new issue or has always been the case with SmartStart. I know Microsoft did away with the i386 structuring.

Thanks in advance.

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm trying to use SmartStart 8.10 with MAPS version of Win2K8 and having the same issue.

I ended up using MSDN. Haven't tried with new version of smart start, maybe they corrected it? Probably not.

Do you have an MSDN subscription? I only have an Action Pack subscription. How did you get the MSDN media if you don't have an MSDN subscription?

My company has subscriptions to both. To make things easier, I would install MAPS Win2K8 first, then just load PSP once in Windows. Really your only option unless HP wants to weight in and modify their SmartStart to support MAPS.
