Compaq ProLiant 850R Install Windows NT 4.0

Hope that someone can help me and point me out what I’m doing wrong(?).

From the HP FTP I downloaded SmartStart 5.50, burned the CD, put it in the Compaq ProLiant 850R 6/200N I own and created 4 floppy's to install Windows NT 4.0.

 

I put in floppy 1 and boot the system but it still boots in the old Windows installation (installations to be precise, WNT4.0 andW2K3). I cannot access the system partion since there is no system partition made (and cannot be made with the SmartStartCD)... I already found the DIP-switch to overrule the floppy boot but that didn’t help me either.

 

When I see the information about the PC via the SmartStart CD the floppy drive is detected (1.44MB 3.5”), the disks for installing NT 4.0 are created with this drive so I have to work.

No one can help me with this problem?

Another question besides this one then... Where could I find a SmartStart CD from the 4.x range? I have read somewhere maybe that would work better...
