Am installing Solaris on a Sparc T3-1 server (new). I have already installed the preinstalled OS on the server. Now i cant install solaris on it. i get stucked at where i have to enter F2_Standard to begin the installation.

- Solaris Interactive Installation ---------------------------------------------

  On the following screens, you can accept the defaults or you can customize
  how Solaris software will be installed by:

        - Selecting the type of Solaris software to install
        - Selecting disks to hold software you've selected
        - Selecting unbundled products to be installed with Solaris
        - Specifying how file systems are laid out on the disks

  After completing these tasks, a summary of your selections (called a
  profile) will be displayed.

  There are two ways to install your Solaris software:

   - "Standard" installs your system from a standard Solaris Distribution.
      Selecting "Standard" allows you to choose between initial install
      and upgrade, if your system is upgradable.
   - "Flash" installs your system from one or more Flash Archives.

can anyone help me out.very urgent.
