Longhorn Beta 3 Installation Problem

Has anyone been able to get Longhorn Beta 3 installed to a DL380 G5 box? It goes through the installation just fine like nothing is wrong but during one of the reboots, it boots into 2003 and tells me that the installation of Windows failed and it has reverted back to Windows 2003.
I had problems with the CTP 2 of Longhorn but I was able to get Lo0nghorn installed by installing Windows 2003 first and then doing an upgrade. I have tried that again this time and this is what happens.I really need to get this installed. I am not using the SmartStart Media as it did not have a Longhorn option and I could not get it to work with the last release of Longhorn.

Re: Longhorn Beta 3 Installation Problem

Have you found a solution to this problem? I'm trying to install Longhorn core and the DL380 G4 does not have a DVD, so wanted to use SmareStart to boot, but no option for longhorn 64
