Solaris 10 installation issue Error 25: Disk cannot be read - Solved

Hi all,

I guess most of you have seen this error message while installing Solaris 10 on an x86 platform. I got the error message while installing from DVD ISO on my home VMWare ESXi server.

It took me a long time to figure the exact issue and a subsequent solution. the solution is very simple. Just remove "$ISADIR" from the grub boot command line option by pressing "e" on the boot menu.

I was wondering if anyone of you have any clue on what this $ISADIR is and why there is no permanent solution for this? I could not find anything fruitful on Oracle's site.

I never saw this error message.
ISADIR is there to allow automatic selection of a 32 bit or 64 bit kernel. Removing it forces 32 bit mode. There must be something wrong with your VMWare configuration.
