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.

Make sure that Solaris CD is meant for SPARC platform.

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

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
