I have been working on a Sun Netra T1 105 for the past two weeks
I have disabled auto boot so when it starts it is going to the ok prompt.Smart. Good move for troubleshooting.
The CD of Solaris 11 is a new one that I burned just two weeks ago and I burned it on 24x speed.I hope that means you replaced the original CD reader with a DVD-capable drive.
And it is the Sparc version that I downloaded.
I also tried installing a DVD-ROM with the Solaris 10 DVD but it gave the same error.
When I type probe-ide it shows that the seconday Master is a Removable ATAPI Model: TOSHIBA CDROM XM-7002BcYes. Since that model computer was discontinued in 2002, there was only a CD-capable drive ever qualified to be used in it.
When I type probe-scsi it shows:A 9GB disk isn't going to be large enough for much more than just a core install of Solaris. You may again need to get larger drive(s) at that same online auction web site. The chassis can hold two internal disks.

Thank you very much.When you get the chance, glance at this link to a copy of the Netra T105's resource page as it appeared in the old Sun System Handbook (SSH). The link is to a non-Oracle site that mirrors the old now-discontinued free version of that SSH.

Do you know where I could download it?Not available any longer. Solaris 8 was never a download but only a purchased media kit.
Or does someone have cd's that I can use?As I mentioned in my first reply - go to your favorite online auction web site, such as eBay. Buy a full media kit for SPARC (not a kit for x86). That way you will get proper commercially pressed CD media and manuals.

well, according to sun/oracle handbook, sol 10 is supported:
As for Solaris ISO download I recommend following document:Access to such a document requies MOS login credentials, and I doubt that the O.P. has that.
Where to download Oracle Solaris ISO images and Update Releases (Doc ID 1277964.1)
Apart from that MMU miss can mean anything: disk, memory, systemboard etc...Yes, there are many causes for those symptoms, including just not starting properly correctly from thet OK prompt.
I would recommend connecting through Serial Port and obtaining diagnostic outputs from LOM console.I think LOM is the default until or unless the system is deliberately reconfigured to become the console. (Difficult to actially remember because it's been over ten years since I touched one of those boxes.)
Hope this helps.
