Subject: Problem booting SPARC64 installcd on Blade2500 systems
Date: Fri, 13 Oct 2006 11:19:28 +0200 (CEST)
Hi,


I'm trying to get the latest 2006.1 Sparc Universal bootcd (downloaded 
yesterday) to run on some Blade2500 machines, without much success. I've tried 
the Silver & Non-Silver models, and both the provided kernels (2.6.16 & 2.6.17)

Some basic info regarding the specs (a prtdiag -v is also attached) --

OpenBoot v4.17.1
4096 Mb RAM
XVR-1200 GFX module (SUNW,375-3101)
Dual UltraSPARC IIIi 1280 Mhz CPUs
Broadcom NIC (bge0 in Solaris)

Some have both a XVR-1200 and a XVR-100 module installed (I've tested on both)
The problem however seems to be related to the initial ramdisk --


<..begin BootPROM output..>

Loading initial ramdisk (644214 bytes at 0x133F802000 phys, 0x40C00000 virt)...

	ERROR: Last Trap: Illegal Instruction

Error -256

	ERROR: Last Trap: Memory Address not Aligned


<..end BootPROM output..>

And then it throws you back to the ok prompt.  Any suggestions?  I'll be happy 
to test any experimental livecd's and/or possible BootPROM fixes (env. settings, 
disabling mem, etc.) I didn't do an asr-disable, as the previous problems seemed 
to have to do with having more than 4Gb mem, which isn't the issue here.


Regards,
