Unix workstation: Ultra 30hard drive SCSI 10 gigs 300 mhz processor trying to install solairs 8 or 9 from a cd, burned from an ISO Image on Solaris site.

when at boot promt (ok)  I get the message"package deblocker  cannot open The CD works on an identical system, the only difference I can see is the openboot promThe unix box where the install works has openboot prom version3.2the unix bos where the installation is running into "cannot open package deblocker " is openboot prom version 3.9
I want to change the one unix box to openboot prom version 3.2  

 What is the best way to do this. Also, if I am heading the wrong direction on why the installation is failing, does anyone have any other insight of why the install is failing. The unix box with openboot prom version 3.9  is currently running solaris 7 Thanks

Do you have any other CD's to see if you get the same error.

At OK> type show-devs
Do you see the /packages/deblocker
OK> cd /packages
OK> ls
Is there a memory space allocated to deblocker?

Im not sure about downgrading the prom code but here is a link for upgrading info
