    Installation of Solaris 10 on SUN Sparc M4000

      I am trying to install Solaris 10 on SUN SPARC M4000.

      Here is the error I have:

      +Enter filename [kernel/sparcv9/unix]: /platform/sun4v/kernel/sparcv9/unix+
      +Enter default directory for modules [platform/sun4v/kernel /kernel /usr/kernel]:+
      krtld: load_exec: fail to expand cpu/$CPU
      krtld: error during initial load/link phase
      panic - boot: exitto64 returned from client program
      Program terminated

      It seems that version of Solaris I trying to install is not support by the Hardware, when I use another Solaris 10 DVD, it works...
      But the problem is that I need to install this Solaris version because others softwares are depending on that.

      If someone knows how to make this installation possible, it will be very helpfull.

      Thanks in advance.
