SmartStart error code 45

I'm getting an unrecoverable error code 45 when using the Smartstart assisted installation of Windows 2000 server. The error occurs right after the drive array has been configured and the system partition has been created. I get the message "performing hardware discovery", then "hardware discovery complete", then the Smartstart splash screen and then the error. My only option is to run system erase. I've tried it three times with the same result.

Try re-running smartstart but use version 4.8 (or earlier) instead of 4.9. We had the same error message/problem and found out that 4.9 would not work with our combination of hardware.

Did running version 4.8 resolve your problem?

Yes. Smartstart 4.8 worked perfectly.
