I'll check the installer ISO on this machine tomorrow. Hopefully it
behaves differently than the rx2620.
Indeed the rx4640 behaves differently than the rx2620, despite the same
chipset and the older Itanium processors. The installation works through
identically to the rx2660 (with the earlier mentioned manual "help"). No
error messages like on the rx2620. I'm not sure why this is like that,
As an additional test I will try the resulting on-disk installation
performed on the rx4640 on the rx2620.
