This is documented in the memory installation instructions in the official
sun service manual. There are many many different configurations, depending
on the system and on how much memory you have in total.
I found this out when I tried to install SunOS which also crashed.

Moving the DIMMs around as you did may not have solved the issue
completely, so I'd recommend you still check.
