Smartstart hangs on boot up

I have a ML150 G2 server that I am attempting to get deployed. This is the first time I have bought one of these.

I load Smartstart v. 6.10 and everything seems fine. I get to the loading Smartstart screen which throws up the four and a half rows of dots follow by Loading Drivers....Done!

Then, nothing. The screen goes blank and nothing is happening. In fact, I cannot even get the CD out of the drive because it won't eject, almost like it doesn't have power although it does.

Any help would be appreciated. This server has put me 2 days in the hole.

Thanks!

6.1 SS CD not supported for G2, server should come with Support CD. What Controller you use: SATA or SCSI ?

I have tried both.

Which version is compatible with the ML150 then?

Thanks

SmartStart does not support the ProLiant 100 series of Servers.
