What OS? Perhaps try booting a different one? Also, describe how you are
doing your USB key. Is it bootable elsewhere?

I dont currently have any opteron Sun x41xx so I cant test anything here,
but I'm sure there are still plenty of those on the solaris-x86 and on the
openindiana discussion lists. I'd also try on the zfs list and the ncsa

Finally, have you considered that the server might be damaged?
