I am trying to install Solaris 10 x86 under VMWare Workstation 7. VMWare recognizes the ISO file as for Solaris 10, but when I boot from the it I just get a prompt fro grub. I checked about grub and found the grub is used to load the kernel but haven't found how to use it. On the other hand, all documents I found so far about the Solaris 10 install under VM, say the I shoud get a graphic install automatically.
