James are your machines Ultra 40 M2's or just plain ol Ultra 40's?
Ours is the non-M2 model and we had problems with 5.0 as well as 5.1.
However, it appears to be something related to LVM -- specifically
something the GUI installer is telling LVM to do. If we manually set
up the partitions and LVM stuff (from the console while still at the
welcome screen), everything works fine. It's only when anaconda
handles the partitioning and LVM setup that we run into issues.
