Problem trying to install Solaris 10 on Virtual PC

I am trying to install solaris 10 for the first time on Virtual PC after downloading the 6 cds from SUN
However I have booted off the first one and followed the guide from sun provided here:

And the system seems to get to display the following and stops responding.

SunOS Release 5.10 Version Generic_Patch 32-bit

Any ideas?

I have not used Microsoft Virtual PC 2004! some one was having trouble with it.
"Can't handle Solaris 10, at least not the installer", see:
Which "Virtual PC"? VMware?

hello mistaj

microsoft vpc 2004 sucks

you wont be able to install . i tried already . waste too much of my time

check out the nukfror site. its cools. i dont know how he got that my knowledge on all the OS . its strange. but what he say about solaris 10 is correct .  i think i had the same problem.

try to run on vmware software
and it works fine

and before that also check the your hardware compatibility   on sun site to see  your system harware is listed.
