Install of Windows 7 on Ultra 40 M2

Any recommendations? Once it parititions the drive on install, its unable to format the drive it created.

Even install of XP is causing me problems. I install XP all the way through, then go to install the drivers from the Utilities and Drivers ISO and I get the machine is now getting blue screen of death and rebooting every time.

    Hello Eric,

    I sure there is a vast number of internal Sun/Oracle resources (e.g. InfoDocs in the Sun System Handbook, a database with the support calls and solutions, etc.). The error code from the blue screen can be used to search the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

    If you have found a solution, can you post how you solved the issue ?
