go and download the latest solaris 10 version... yours is rather old. there have been a lot of enhancements in the newer versions.

Question kernel must be loaded before booting

Dear All

I downloaded Latest version of solaris from SUN
(Solaris 10 10/09 x64/x86 DVD
sol-10-u8-ga-x86-dvd.iso )
and changed my HDD also .'
but it also showing same. Stopping at GRUB and showing error

Error 8 " kernel must be loaded before booting"

Is any comparability issue with Core2Duo Processors and Intel G31 chipset motherboard?
I tried the same in VMware but it not installing .
