DL385 g6 (Dual Opteron 6Core) smartstart 8.30 does not show 64Bits SOs Install options

I have a DL385 G6 with 2 opteron, 6 cores each one, its the performance model with ICE Pack.

When I tried to install it, I boot from smartstart 8.30, create Arrays, reboot and go to install. THen I select the Partition where i want to install, accept the licence, and on the next screen, It only shows me Windows x86 Install options. On the HP web site it shows Windows 2008R2 Driver options, but smartstart does not allow me to install Windows 2008R2.

Any idea?
Many thanks

Hi

there are two versions of SmartStart, one for 32bit - x86, and one for 64bit - x64, so I think you have 32 bit version of Smartstart.
Try with this one:

You was Right, this was a very stupid question, I was trying to install Windows 2008R2 with 32bit Smart Start, Thanks a lot anyway for answer so fast!
