Hello experts,

I'm trying to install Sol 10 U9 on my x86_64 server. When I boot through the OS DVD, installation stops at
"SunOS Release 5.10 Version Generic_xxxx 64-bit
Copyright ...."
It doesnt go beyind this point.

I added -kdv to the kernel grub line.
[0]> moddebug/W 0x80000000
[0]> :c

Found that the installation stops at
"Load 'drv/i8042' id 87 loaded @ 0xffff.../0xfff... size 4784/496
installing i8042, module id 87"

There is no keyboard/mouse connected to this server.

I'm stuck here and can't proceed any further.Any help here is highly appreciated.
