BL460c Gen8 boot-from-san fails to install Windows 2008 R2

Hi, Trying to use Intelligent Provisioning to install Windows 2008 R2 server on a Bl460c Gen8 Blade Server but it goes through all the steps of the wizard and then it reboots to install Windows and fails.  The wizard sees the LUN and formats it and copied over the wim files etc. but not sure why it fails to complete the installation.  Tried a bunch of things but nothing seems to work.  Any ideas what is causing this ?  The LUN is being presented from EMC VNX via a Brocade 6520 FC switch.  Thanks

It has a garbage char on the end.  Try this one:
