BL20P Virtual Media

I am attmepting to do an unattended 2000 SP4 install booting from the virtual cdrom. The install gets to the end of the DOS installation and generates a "hivedef.inf" missing or corrupted. Then the ILO spits out a CD Media Error. Then the virtual cdrom shows disconnected.

I have verifeid the integrity of both the CDROM, CD and Hivedef.inf file on a regular DL380.

Are therer any known issues doing installs booting from the Virtual CDROM media??
