when attempting to boot cdrom -s i get "the file loaded does not appear to be executable" URGENT

I tried another dvd with the same results. This is solaris 10 280r.
will not boot into singel user mode from dvd. I thought possible using a solaris 9 cdrom ..would that work ? Just need to get to single user mode.

Any bootable cdrom for Solaris should be able to boot to single user mode. Give it a try.

Make sure that Solaris CD is meant for SPARC platform.

instead of using the Installation CD, use the Software CD (Disk 1) and run boot cdrom -s.

I have to ask the simple question. Did this work before?

My 280r came with a CD, not DVD, reader. This is the error I get trying to boot from a DVD.

You need to record media at lowest speed possible.
Solaris 10 CD will fix microcodes on first boot to make CD-ROM more stable

Burn the Solaris 10 OS CD using Nero Software  select the write option as disk at once/96 and  Set speed  8x. this will definitely work
