Ack! As I figured. I don't know what the issue is with that drive but neither
SGI or HP boxes seem to like those drives even though they are supposed to be
512 byte block and are for sure Sun bootable.
I have had good experience with the Sun 2x tray loader (Toshiba XM-4101B) on
other than Sun machines.
I have also seen the SGI machines complain about the Plextor drives but the
install seems to go well enough anyway :)
