1. when exactly you see the file missing error and what is the name of the file ?
2. Did you try with the different OS CD and SmartStart CD? and hope you are using latest Smart start CD.

File names are not with specific names, showing different names. Please suggest ASAP.

Re: Unable to install Windows2003

Hi, this seems to be issue with the previous file system.... as Linux and Windows uses different file system ... i suggest you the following to proceed with the installation:

Boot the server with smart start CD and Run clear erase utility - under the Maintenance Tab... ( http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/smartstart/questionsanswers.html#f4 )

Reboot the server and make any specific changes to RAID configuration (other than default one)â ¦ and then deploy the operating system from the smart start CD.

Note: ** Ensure that you do not have any data or other logical volumes on hard drives, as clear erase will delete all the data in hard drives and attached storage.
