I am installing sbs 2003 onto a HP ML370 g6 server. However during the install the server blue screens. It does this at the point when it says around 35 mins left and is detecting hardware 50% stage of detecting hardware.
I have tried to the install with a smart start 8.4 as well as no smart start.
The blue screen always looks the same (its no help or I am reading it wrong)

The reason for the install is a client is moving from an old ml370 to a new one.

I can install an updated server 2003 but then the restore of the sbs fails due to missing files so I woudl like the sbs install to work.

I have tried disabling various hardware through the bios as well as hyper threading etc. Is anyone aware of anything particular that would need to be disabled to stop sbs install freaking out?

Has anyone had a smiliar problem.

I had done the latest update for firmware etc up to 8.4 just downloading the 8.5. Didnt think to check as we only got the server this week and figured they would ship with the latest version.
Fingers crossed.
