BL460c PXE boot loop - HP RDP altiris

I'm trying to get a BL460c to run a scripted install of ESX3.5 u4 through the HP RDP altiris system.

Except it refuses stubbornly. I've formatted the drives, reseated the blade, changed bays, returned all bios settings to default, reneabled what's required to run ESX. I have an identicle blade (exact same hardware and firmware updates) which runs the install just fine in the same enclosure.

It just endlessly runs boots to Altiris, then restarts the system despite there obviously being a job waiting for it.

One cause of this could be another object for the same Server. Most times this happens is when the server is already in the RDP.
