Post subject:  Need help doing Server Restore using a Mac

I previously posted this under the WHS V1 Troubleshooting topic, but thought I might get better help here:

I am trying to do a server restore of my EX-490 using my Mac computer.

It seems as if the main support for server restore is using a PC, but I have found some instructions that seem geared toward using a Mac computer instead. I started the Mediasmart System Recovery process using the menu selection under the Mediasmart icon. It instructed me to insert a USB flash drive that it would prepare for the restore process. I did this and the Restore USB drive was prepared successfully.

The instructions on the USB drive indicated that I should insert the HP Software Installation Disc into the CD drive and then boot from this disc. I have tried this several times but the disc does not seem to be bootable on any of my Mac computers. I also tried to see if the HP Server Recovery Disc was bootable, but it wasn't.

I have looked extensively for written instructions from HP about how the Server Restore process should be done with a Mac, but I haven't found anything.

Can anyone offer any help or documentation for how I should go about doing Server Recovery with a Mac? Thanks.
