	Ah, I see what you mean. Unfortunately, the procedure is not the same for the 
X1/Blade 100 as for the rest of the Sun boxes. I am now upgrading an Ultra 5 
and, indeed, you boot the upgrader that does the job; that is not the case 
with the X1s (and presumably more newer boxes).

	I'd say that the only way would be to have a netbootable Solaris and use it 
for this task.

	Thanks anyway!
