INSTALL 2000 DURING SMARTSTART

SMART START HAS TAKEN ME TO THE INSTALLATION POINT. WIN 2000 IS REQUESTING THE CD, PUTTING IN THE CD, PRESS OKAY AND NOTHING HAPPENS, CONTINUES TO CALL FOR A CD.

Re: INSTALL 2000 DURING SMARTSTART

same here, only it's not just smartstart, any installation method hangs at the point that it requests the advanced server cd. just spent 3 hrs on the phone with compaq, still no solution. any idea what fixed yours?

Re: INSTALL 2000 DURING SMARTSTART

I'm also having this problem on a new ML570. My issue however is related to the Smart Start failing during Windows 2000 installation because of "File Not Found" errors. I've checked all the files that are "missing" and they all exist when the CD is read from a different computer. Thoughts? Smart Start doesn't seem to allow me to choose between a CD install or network installation, not the CPQIS type either.
