Then try the cdrom drive from one of those other sparcs that it works
It may be your cdrom drive doesn't like the burnable media. I bought a
machine from Dell a few months ago. Brand new machine. The CDROM
came with refused to boot off a CD that I literally could boot off of
other machine I have. So I used a CDROM from one of those. Problem
Well, my other sparcs are ss20's. So scsi and ide don’t mix. I highly
that this is a cdrom or cd problem. I had thought before though, that
my cds. I tried a different brand, and tried burning at 2x to no avail.
I have just had exactly the same problem trying to install Gentoo on an
Ultra 5, and would be interested in finding out why. Unfortunately I
don't have any spare CD drives lying around to test out.
