Does it give you a more specific error? Or does it just say "Can't mount cdrom"?

Here is a quick solution if you haven't found one already. Enable the CD-ROM in your system BIOS to be the boot device. This will eliminate using the floppy disk to start the setup process.

I have tried to boot from the cd and it did not help the issue with my case in loading Solaris 7.

You have to have the boot disk to install the software.

can someone confirm or deny this.

I also tried solaris 7 and i think you need a boot diskette to load solaris on intel. I hope you need to make the CD-ROM as secondary master to resolve the issue of not finding or mounting the CDROM .
