    CDROM drive enterprise 250

    807557
      Hi Guys,

      We just got an enterprise 250 from a different department. There was some sensitive data on the drives so we wiped it down, using formant->analyze->purge. Prior to doing this the cdrom drive worked fine. Afterwards However, when we try to re-install the new OS by doing a "boot cdrom" from the ok prompt, we are are getting a "drive not ready" error. I did a probe-scsi and the machine sees the cdrom drive on target 6. However, when I when I put in an install disk nothing happens. (No light, doesn't seem to spin up nothing) I have tried this with three different disks, all of which I know work.

      Any and all help would be greatly appreciated as i don't know all that much about Sun Hardware.
