Symptoms

The Sun Fire X4450 boot may hang after upgrading to BIOS 3B12.
This BIOS was delivered by Tools and Drivers DVD 1.1a.
A small number of Sun Fire X4450s are missing the Product Part Number in the Field Replaceable Unit data (FRU). If the BIOS is upgraded to 3B12, a system with incorrectly populated data may hang during boot.
This has resulted in unnecessary replacements of system boards.
