Kernel Direct Mapping Hang on Install

DL385 Opteron Dual core 2.4GHz
4GB memory
FW up to date as of 12/16/05
Default condition except for RAID setup:
4x36GB RAID5 single LUN
KVM connect only

Redhat AS4/64 Update 2 install from cdrom
fails with:

"Kernel direct mapping tables up to..."

Kernel is 2.6.9-22.ELsmp

32 bit OS loads okay. I have an identical server that installed without problems.

Thanks for input.

Re: Kernel Direct Mapping Hang on Install

Fixed this one by booting with:

linux noapic

Still a mystery because 2 identical machines
(same BIOS) one installed and runs fine and
the other one requires preceeding flag.

APIC setting on both is "Full Mapping"
whatever that means.
