Solaris 8 - Installation CDE Error

Deard all, I installed Solaris 8 in a SUN machine, and after Solaris and Language modules installed, the result is that CDE is not working, also single user mode is only available.
I tried with all init stages and the same result.

Can someone advice me what to check (Some log file) or what to try in order not to reinstall Solaris again?
