Description (partial)

Symptom:
- Installation of Win2008R2 begins
    - Installer intentionally reloads as part of installation
    - Reload fails straight after loading the disk.sys driver
    - Blade reboots, and continues in a boot loop failing after disk.sys driver
    - Because boot doesn't succeed, the final installation steps never complete
    
    - If the BIOS version is downgraded to 2.1.1 (from 2.1.2a package), then boot succeeds, and installation completes
    - Once the install has completed on another firmware version, booting then also works on 2.1.3a

Conditions:
- Windows 2008 R2
- BIOS firmware of 2.1.3a
