Black Screen booting smart start on BL460C

Hi all,
I'm having a problem booting my BL460C blades to the Smart Start 8.30 disk as well as the FW update disk 8.60.

When I boot the blade from either disk, I get video signal up until the end of the loading countdown and then the screen goes black. I'm using the USB/video dongle to install, not ILO.

There are numerous other threads on this subject but all mention using the latest SS and FW disks as a possible cure, and thats not helping me. Also I've seen where blades with more than 64GB of memory may have issues but mine only have 10GB.

Any ideas? I have 10 of these blades to build and I'm stumped.
