Sun Blade 150 will not boot off harddrive after install of solaris 10


I cant get my blade box to boot off the harddrive after installing solaris 10.I can get to a root prompt after issuing "boot cdrom -s".I tried booting off disk0 and disk1,but I get "the file just loaded does not seem to be executable".Thanks for any help.Smilie

and did you compare it to the output of devalias? this string "/pci@1f,0/ide@d/disk" should be inside your "disk" alias...

Hi Duke,

Thanks for the reply.

The alias for "disk" is /pci@1f,0/ide@d/disk@0,0.

Ive tried everything to get it to boot.Installing solaris again,installing a new bootblock and the command "set-defaults".I still get the same error.Could it possible that I need to update openboot my revision is 4.6.
