" From: awouk at nilenet.com (Arthur Wouk)
" i am trying to put solaris 9 onto my sparc 10s. i downloaded the iso
" images from the sun web site, burned them onto cds on a macintosh
" system which was available to me (i don't have a burner on my suns), and
" took the cds to my suns.
" i am working with two sparc10s with ross hypersparc 150mhz cpus, and
" each with over 400megs of ram. each has an external cdrom drive.
" each has one internal boot drive and an external hard drive in a 411
" box. no other obvious differences. each is running the 2.25R boot prom.
" at first neither drive on either machine could see the cds. i kept
" putting in the software 1of2 cd and then the the machines started
" reading them. so i can put software 1of2 on both machines. when it
" comes to software 2of2, one of the machines reads it perfectly, but the
" other hasn't read it at all as yet (over 25 tries). i tried exchanging
" the cd drives, but that doesn't change matters, the problem seems to
" be in the sparc10 itself.
" anyone have any clues as to what is going on? why would one machine
" refuse the cd so many times?
could be burn speed. old cd drives need a heavier burn than newer
that said, i burned 2.6 at 8x and my [2x? 4x?] xm4101 [ss5/20 drive]
read it fine.
