I have been trying to install Solaris 10u4 on a AMD Opteron 170
(dual-core, 2 GHz) box with 4 GB ECC DDR2 RAM, and two 80G SATA drives.
There's also a hardware RAID card, but I've not even tried touching that
with Solaris yet.

I'm Jumpstarting the machine, which has been working fine with other x86
and SPARC boxen so far. This particular box, however, keeps panic'ing
during install. I get different panics, but they always occur at the
same spot during install. Over a serial console, I've got the following
from a couple of different attempts (long lines follow; trying to
preserve formatting):

The drives worked fine in another machine, and the RAM seems fine (at least
enough for a few passes of memtest86+), and this seems too reproducible
to be a RAM problem. And in any case, the system runs fine with Linux,
so I am doubtful of a serious hardware problem.

Any ideas on what this could be? Or where I can go from here? I'm not
even sure what else to look at at this point.
