Solaris Install on Netra X4450

I burned a Sun Solaris 10 x86 image on disk and trying to install it on Netra X4450. I verified in the BIOS that boot start with DVD first then a disk. However, when booting from disk I am getting the following error:

kernel$ /boot/multiboot kernel/$ISADIR/unix -B install_media=cdrom
loading '/boot/multiboot kernel/$ISADIR/unix -B install_media=cdrom' ...
cpu: 'GenuineIntel' family 6 model 15 step 11

module$ /boot/$ISADIR/x86.miniroot
loading '/boot/$ISADIR/x86.miniroot' ...
Error 3: Bad or corrupt data while decompressing file

Need some help to resolve or go around this! Thanks!

I am using this image sol-10-u8-ga-x86-dvd.iso which I have downloaded from Sun web site and burned it to a DVD

have you tried to download it again or have you checked the image with the checksum from the sun site to make sure the image is ok?

I tried downloading and burning a new disk; and it worked! It seems the older had issue or something corrupted. Thanks!
