420R boots Solaris 9 DVD?

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Luis Fernandes, Jun 18, 2004.

  1. Is there a reason why a 420R will not boot Solaris 9 (9/02) DVD
    media?

    I wouldn't boot and install the miniroot off the DVD so we used the
    CD. After the miniroot is installed, one of the choices was "CD/DVD
    Media"; put the DVD in, hit RET and it's promptly rejected. :(

    It's quite happy doing the 6 CD media shuffle...

    Does it need a PROM upgrade?

    If your DVD-ROM is a Toshiba 1401, try firmware patch 111649-03

    It is a DVD-ROM and not a CD-ROM right?
