          I've just run into a very similar problem with a Solaris 10 11/06 installation on a V245. The post-installation messages had this warning:

          Solaris 10 software installation partially failed

          Solaris 10 packages partially installed
          SUNWckr

          and the initial boot failed with the following error messages:

          boot: cannot find misc/sparcv9/krtld
          boot: error loading interpreter (misc/sparcv9/krtld)
          Elf64 read error.
          boot failed
          Enter filename [platform/sun4u/kernel/sparcv9/unix]:
          Elf64 read error.
          boot failed
          Enter filename [platform/sun4u/kernel/sparcv9/unix]:
          Alloc of 0x400000 bytes at 0x1000000 refused.
          Elf64 read error.
          boot failed
          Enter filename [platform/sun4u/kernel/sparcv9/unix]:

          Were you able to resolve your problem, and if so, any clues?

          Thanks.

            Problem solved, for me at least. I still have no idea why the package failed to install properly during the initial installation, but it was easy to repair.

            1) Boot from cdrom with -s.
            2) Mount the disk (or RAID volume) on /mnt
            3) cd to the package area on the CD or DVD
            4) pkgadd -d $PWD -R /mnt SUNWckr

            The package was added without any error messages and the system boots fine now.
