Booting from CD

Hi
I had a problem in system and I want to bypass loading the system from HD and reboot from CD.
The system does not accept any logins even root and I can not run any maintenance services, so I can not use boot cdrom.
It is SUN ultra1 machine and solaris 2.5.1 system.
Thank you

Hi
Are you trying to from the prom level or when the machine is fully booted with a login prompt?

To stop the boot process press "Stop" and "a" together when the machine first starts to boot. This will leave you with an OK prompt (at the prom level). Now type boot cdrom.
