Please make sure you are installing the latest possible firmware versions for both the
system and the RAID controller. The Itanium machines can show various issues with Linux
when the firmware is too old.
My RX2660 wouldn't boot with SMP with newer kernels, for example, until I upgraded the
firmware of the RAID controller to the latest version. Before that, I always had to
pass "nosmp" or the RAID controller wouldn't get detected.
You should also make sure you don't have any bad memory by running a program for testing
the main memory such as memtest86.
