How can I install Solaris 10 8/11 on a Dell Precision T7400? The bootable DVD iso I downloaded seems to get stuck in a reboot loop prior to even starting the install process.
I found an old thread (for a previous Solaris 10 release ) that suggested to:
-Add in grub-kernelline: -B disable-intel_nb5000=true -kd
-Type in kmdb:
However this no longer seems to work. The breakpoint is not hit, and the installer dies with the message "ERROR: Unable to configure network interfaces. Exiting to shell."
Is there any way to install a fresh copy of Solaris 10 on a Dell T7400?

I'm not sure this is particularly helpful, but at what point do you get the "Network Interfaces" error message. That seems pretty far down the initial Solaris boot sequence. Have you disabled (or enabled ACPI) and USB legacy or not in the BIOS? Sometimes those things make a difference.
