HP Smartstart loading Windows CD-Rom problem


I get a problem trying to install Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 on my blade C7000.

I tried the following installation with smartstart 8.0 et 8.25 :

- I boot the server on my smartstart cd-rom.
- I answer all form questions
- I validate the laste step asking if me if I'm sure want to erase my disk.

At the following step, when normally Smartstart create partition, copy drivers and ask the Windows CD-Rom, Smartstart never ask me the Windows CD-Rom.

I wait 10 hours (night), 1 hour the next time.

This issue occurs with 2 copies of smartstart 8.0 and the ISO of Smartstart 8.25, downloaded today.

Adding at, once in two, some images of smafrtstart web interface don't appear and are replaced by red cross.

Weird !

Is there someone who could tell me what's happen ?

Thanks a lot,
