I have a Solaris 8 (5.8) on a Sun Ultra10 box. When I did a reboot, the system stalls at the line:
Rebooting with command: boot
Boot device: disk:a File and args:
That last line is supposedly the spinning cursor, but it stops spinning. No error messages produced whatsoever. Can't get past this stage. I have a set of Solaris 8 install disks.
Any suggestions as to what I can do? I imagine there's something wrong with the boot block or the mounts, so I would need to run fsck, but how do I run it from here?
So, any suggestions would greatly help. Thanks so much.
