✔ Best Answer
You have a fairly high end but older Sun server computer, what is it you want to do with it and why are you posting in the Windows 7 forums?

Do you even realize what you have? This system was not meant to run Windows 7.

Try F8 after the bios load point & see if you can get out of Windows.

THX 1138 "why are you posting in the Windows 7 forums?" a bit mystified by your response, the OP has Win 7 and these are the Win 7 forums.

In addition to THX 1138's post;

It may or may not be of help, but if you don't already have it, you can download the service manual directly from this link:-
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19127-01...

Btw. I can't find the post now, but was it you who posted earlier querying how to reset BIOS on this system and whether to remove CMOS battery with power on or off?
There wasn't a response at the time...

Nice googling Peet100, at least it has the codes.

Code 28: Using the table of configurations supplied by the specific chipset module,
test each DRAM configuration to see if that particular configuration is
valid. Then program the chipset to its autosized configuration.
Before autosizing, disable all caches and all shadow RAM.
