    Unhappy solaris 10 loading problem

    Hi all,

    when i start loading solaris 10 x86, it gives a warning message continuously.
    Warning: init exited on fatal signal 9; restarting

    I never get a bash to check things, so what to do????
    it was working properly before this, not during installation.

    Default Boot Failure

    I'm not sure which version of Solaris 10 you're using, but if it is not ancient it should be booting via grub.

    If you're booting via GRUB if you modify the kernel option to add -v you might get a better idea of what point it is failing.

    have you tried booting to fail-safe mode?

    I am using SunOS 5.10.
    i dnt know, how to boot via GRUB?
    basically it fails to load in init as describe in the error message.
    which is "Warning: init exited on fatal signal 9; restarting"

    and i have tried with fail-safe mode by typing boot -s or b -s, but it didn't load in fail-safe mode.

    Ahh!, you're on Sparc ... try "boot -v"

    Ok, but did you try "boot -v"?
