I have an HP Proliant DL380 G4 that was running server 2003 SBS and I took it off line to re-purpose at a different site. I ran SmartStart and selected Server 2003 standard and it gets to the point where the OS is installing devicesand I get a BSOD stating
***Hardware malfunction***
NMI: Parity check / Memory parity error.
The system has halted
I have tried SmartStart versions 7.10, 8.40 and 8.50 as well as Server 2003 and Server 2008.
HELP!!!

seems you have faulty memory
likely won't get anywhere with any operating system until you find the bad module(s)

run memtest86 from a bootable cd or flash drive

Any of those SmartStart versions should run fine so I agree it's hardware.  Your SmartStart CD has diagnostics on it, boot to SmartStart and run complete diags.  That should tell you.

I have run the diagnostics, including memory tests, from SmartStart and all tests pass.

I disabled one of the NICs in BIOS and the install was able to complete without errors so I guess I will give the points to myself.
