Installation on HP Proliant via iLO -> "Error mounting /dev/acd0 on
a at jenisch.at

I'm having a hard time trying to install FreeBSD 8.0 on an HP Proliant
server. To be specific I try to instal the amd64 variant of FreeBSD
8.0 on a ProLiant DL385 G1.
Since the server is remote installation is to be done via the virtual
CD/DVD of the iLO management.
The install process runs smooth up to the point where the install
process finishes formatting then I get the following error:
"Error mounting /dev/acd0 on /dist: Input/output error (5)"
and installation can't proceed.
Interestingly that the installation runs from CD up to this point
without any problem whatsoever. This can't be a problem with the
"CD/DVD" since I've mounted the ISO-image via a virtual drive.
I've already tried downloading the ISO again - same result.
Likewise I tried with the CD-image instead of the DVD-image - same result :-(
So here are my questions:
o) has anybody seen symptoms like this on a HP proliant server when
installation is done via the "virtual CD/DVD"-drive?
o) Any cure against this?
Thanks much in advance for any clue,
