Windows 2008 will not load on HP DL 360 G6

I cannot get Windows 2008 to load on a HP DL 360 G6 server.

After I load the 8.3 PSP I put in the Windows 2008 cd in and it loads ok.

Then Windows will not load. It hangs at the screen where it says Microsoft Windows and it shows the yellow bar moving back and forth. It never goes beyond that screen.

I have has lots of problems with the DL 360 G6 servers.

Any ideas on what this one is doing is appreciated

Yeah I've encountered this...

Here is what I have done:

1) Run the SmartStart DVD - either by ISO via ILO or the DVD Drive

2) Get your copy of 2008 (been using R2) and make an ISO of it.

3) Mount the 2008 iso either by USB or ILO virtual USB.

I have tried using the actual DVD - but encountered a similar issue to what you are describing. Though on one server I have had to do this twice.
