Solaris 10 on Ultra 4

Has anyone successfully tried installing Solaris 10 on an Ultra 4??

The machine in question has a 300MHz SPARCIIi CPU and 1 GB of RAM which - according to the SUN doco should be enough. However when I try and install it just hangs on the "configuring Devices" message. I left it overnight to see if it was just taking it's time but 18 hours later was still giving the same message.

Cheers

That doesn't mean that the platform/devices are compatible.
Also, I've never heard of an ultra-4.

Ultra-4 is what is reported for an E450.
