cannot reconfigure proliant 5500

Hello all,
i have a Proliant 5500 with 2 processors (PIII 500, bios 11 aug 2000)with smart 3200 controller.
my problemis i cannot reconfigure the server with Smart Start 5.1.
[I boot with smart start
choise langage
choise assisted configuration
choise operating system
continue with smart start
please wait, must restart OK]
when I press Enter Boutom to restart, the system is blocked and I must power off server.
I already used NVRAM erase using maintenance swich jumper and also use erase utility to erase all the configuration.
Any suggestion
Thanks

Please make sure the Server has no 3rd Party Hardware. If this does not help then drop the Server down to minimum. No extra PCI cards, min. memory,etc.
Please keep me posted.
We are here for a good time, not a long time!

I drop server down to minimum, no extra pci cards, min memory (4x64Mb), no smart 3200 array (all disks are attached to peripheral board)
I have the same prblem.
I hope that I need to change the peripheral board
Mark have you the same suggestion.
thanks for help
