Solaris 10 installaion problem in X86


I have x86 machine with P4, 512 MB with 17" ViewSonic TFT screen. I installed Solaris 10 and i am geeting the error messages like "Notice: failed to initialize inband hot plug controllers." while booting. Later am getting the shrinked window in single line.

I thought itd because of video settins, i tried kdmconfig (or)/usr/X11/bin/Xorg commands in Fail safe mode. But its not working. Its giving the error message "/X[139]: /usr/X11/bin/Xorg: not found". Please anyone help me on this installation.

first of all please tell us the version of Solaris you try to install!

But if You have problems with the installed hardware please searching for the HCL List of sun, for support of hardware components
Sun Microsystems - BigAdmin - Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility List

My hint is too use the Opensolaris Version you can find it there:
