Xenserver 5.6 kernel panic on install

Hi,

I'm trying to install Xenserver 5.6 on a new Dell R415.  The server has 2 AMD 8 core processors, 64GB RAM and an H200 controller with 2x2TB hard drives in a RAID 1 array.

I tried using the most recent Dell Server Build utility which only has an option for Xenserver 5.6 FP1.  So I downloaded FP1 and tried the install.  The Dell part went fine, but then when installing Xen, I can get to the GRUB screen and choose install, but eventually I get a kernel panic.

I tried downloading the previous Dell Server Build utility and installing Xenserver 5.6 instead, but still got a kernel panic.

I'm trying to install now without RAID (which is not the way I'd want to run it, of course!) just to see if it will work.  Was hoping maybe someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong if anything.  There doesn't seem to be a whole lot out on Google, Citrix forums, EE etc. to guide me.  Thanks!

Below you will find the five lines of the screen before posting the kernel panic message:

Code : d3 81 e2 00 40 00 00 89 c1 89 d6 31 c0 09 ...... (three lines of hexadecimal code)
EIP : [<c02c505f>] enable_pci_io_esc+0x3f/0x50 SS:ESP:ee85fefc
