CPQACU from HP ScritpingTool Kit Problem with fresh HDDs

Hi,

we programmed our one total unattend windows installation (windows 2003) using windows pe 2.0 and the HP SmartStart Scripting Tool Kit & HP Drivers.
With the CPQACU.EXE we erase the Controller- and HDD-Settings (using the erase.ini) and then write our RAID Settings with our own ini.
Everything works fine.
But: When we use a new ProLiant Server and new HDD drivers and the technican skip the posted default Smart Array controller settings, CPQACU.EXE is not able to write the ini's : No disks found.
I don't want to accept the default suggestion, because the skript will/should do the right config.
Why CPQACU.EXE isn't allowed to write on "untouched" hdds without any controller-settings???
any tipps & tricks for me?
thanx & greets,
alexander.
