turn off server when it has no os loaded?

Hi guys. New server, haven't loaded OS. just run tests in smartstart to check hardware is fine. Setup array etc.
How can I turn it off without an OS on there? There doesn't appear to be a shutdown option from smartstart, just reboot.
Can I just hit the button safely?

Yes. You can turn the server off without causeing any trouble.

There should be an "exit" button at the top of the diagnostics as well as from SmartStart. When you exit SmartStart, the CD should eject and the server will reboot.
Enjoy!
