Did you have last ROMpaq for server and SmartArray controller?

For example, you can get this error when trying to install windows 2003 x64 edition with assisted SmartStart installation instead manual.

Re: SmartStart interrupted

Windows 2003 x64 Edition is supported by SmartStart 7.40. The whitepaper says SmartStart is not support but it was written before SmartStart 7.40 was released.
