ML570 G3 is not able to install W2003 properly from the SmartStart CD

ML570 G3 is not able to install W2003 properly from the SmartStart CD

I have a problem, I have a ML570 G3, with two 6404 controllers, 10 HDDs, and a MSA-30 Attached to the server, with everything uptodate(FW).
The problem is that when Installing the OS from the SmartStart CD 7.5, 7.6 or 7.7, after it reboots, the message System Disc Cannot be found appears, but If I install the OS from the Windows CD itself it works...any idea?
And the most interesting thing, the installation from the SmartStart will work, if the server is having a CD in the CD-Rom...
Please, I would appreciate any comment! Thanks

Try changing controller boot order from RBSU pressing "F10" on POST, then you need to create a new array and logical drive from Smart start CD.

The Boot controller order has been checked, the SmartArray 6404 that is having the 10 HDDs is the first...any idea?
