Reloading DL360 G5, won't boot from SmartStart CD

We had one of our new servers loose a drive. It (for whatever reason) caused the entire thing to loose all data. The drives were supposed to be mirrored but that failed. So on to the questions, I'm trying to reload Win2K3 using the SmartStart CD but when it boots from the CD it goes directly to the bash prompt??? How can I get it to boot into the SmartStart GUI?

I had tried the V7.8 that came with the server, I also tried V7.9 that I downloaded and I tried a couple previous version that I had around (7.5&7.7). All did the exact same thing.

I actually found a solution to this, the problem was that we had installed a graphics card. Guess the smartstart cd did not like this. I removed that and it boot to the cd fine.
