Solaris 10 5/08 install and 64-bit mode issues

Dell Optiplex 755, Intel Core2 vPro 3GHz CPU, 4 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD
Two problems encountered:
1) When 2048 MB of RAM allocated to a virtual machine, the Solaris installer crashes when trying to boot XWindows to walk though an interactive install. 1536 MB allocated RAM works fine.
2) Solaris 10 5/08 install won't boot into 64-mode despite having met all requirements. All virtual hardware extensions have been enabled in the BIOS and enabled on newly created virtual machines. New installs run and guest OS doesn't recognize 64-bit capability.
