Are these original disks or copies?

Is the CD clean? No fingerprints, smudges, etc?

Looks like the CD is corrupted.  The best way to check is to make a duplicate of the CD (use only for yourself -otherwise its a piracy) using any CD writer.  While writiing if its giving any error, then the CD is corrupted.  Other wise it must work. Use the duplicate to install the solaris. Use CD to CD copy option.  Do not make image and copy
