Problems with SmartStart Install

Hi, I've been unable to find any info on this error I'm getting rebuilding this 1850r with a new drive cage & new drives (Error from SmartStart is "Error Code: 45").

Box is a dual P2/450, 3200 controller, 4-36GB U3 drives, 1GB RAM. SmartStart builds the 0+1 array, appears to complete the system partition install and then rescans for hardware. At this point it errors out with "An unrecoverable error occurred while running Smart Start. Error Code: 45" and only option is to run system erase.
Any ideas on what the cause is?

thx for assistance

Bad form to reply to my own post but ...

Just found a post in the SmartStart section referencing the problem I was having and one of their solutions was to remove half the ram. Well, I tried that and the smartstart section completes now! I gotta call BS on that :)

thx
