solaris reboots as it start loading

hello, my problem is the one of the title , as I press enter on Solaris voice in the grub, my computer reboots , is there an option, a flag ,I can add to the Solaris voice , that allow me to see where is the problem ? something that avoid the computer reboot on error? I can't find a way to know where the problem is , cause I yet didn't see an only one error message.

boot your system in "failsafe" mode from grub. your root filesystem should be mounted to /a automaticly. edit the file /a/boot/grub/menu.lst from:
Code:
kernel /platform/i86pc/multiboot

to:
Code:
kernel /platform/i86pc/multiboot kernel/unix -v

reboot your system and have a look at the output...

i make the system boot with the kernel/unix -v flag, but I did this editing the menu that let me choose which operative system to start, because I don't know how to use vi , is it the same? the last line of the output are these:

Code:
root nexus = i86pc
pseudo0 at root
pseudo0 is /pseudo
scsi_vhci0 at root
scsi_vhci0 is /scsi_vhci
npe0 at root: space 0 offset 0
npe0 is /pci@0,0

i searched on google and I found that after npe0 is /pci@0,0 there should be "PCI EXPRESS device" voice. But my pci express video card work very well.

the line that i've posted are the last line of the output shown on the screen after I modified the file that you told me . They are the result of the kernel/unix -v bootoption. Looking the output , do you know what the problem could be ?
