I have an old Sun E450. When I try to boot from the CDROM drive with a newly created Solaris 10 CD (downloaded from Sun) the system resets and then says "device not ready"
I am trying to work out of the CD is not bootable or the CDROM drive is faulty.
Can you help ?
Make sure that you are running the latest OBP release (3.30) their was a BUG about DEVICE NOT READY for some type of drives.
Check also at the OBP level with prove-ide-all that the cdrom drive is vissible.
If not than try to burn on different DVDRW drive the CD.
