Why does my Sun SunFire X2100 reboot when I try to install Ubuntu?

I have tried Ubuntu version 6.06 through 8.04. I have tried the 32 and 64 bit versions. The SunFire X2100 uses an AMD Opteron processor, not a SPARC.

The Ubuntu Live CD will boot fine into the live OS. I can begin the installation and answer all the questions. The machine reboots when I get to the actual installing.

The machine will just reboot just as the hard drive partitioning starts. It is a hard reboot. The screen goes black, then its loading the BIOS. No warnings. It is a single drive, no RAID.

I have a feeling it reboots when it tries to write to the hard drive, but I'm not positive.
It always reboots at the same part of installation. After I fill out all the forms (user, KB settings, partition settings) and shows me the status bar. Some text about partitioning appears above the status and it reboots. Exact place, every time.

Does it always reboot at EXACTLY the same spot? If so, it's hard drive issue. Either try partitioning the drive manually (with another program) or setup a different partition table.

If it varies, then the computer may be overheating. Try blowing the dust out of it and whatnot then try installing again.

Additional details: Alright, although it will be good to clean out anyways, it's not a matter of overheating. If you have another hard drive you can try then do. Or attempt to format the hard drive with a small ammount of space on the front of the drive as free space (just delete whatever partition is on there now, don't format it). If it's a bad sector or partition error on the drive then hopefully you can just kind of 'skip' over it, but I don't know that the partition manager will allow you to do that. You can also try formatting with an external partition manager then just mount those partitions.
