I've been asked to help with a Sunblade 1500. Ultrasparc IIIi, XVR-1200 (ati?) 2048MB. The disk has been wiped, and has no solaris

I burned install-sparc-minimal-20100201. SILO boots, but after starting the kernel the system resets just after a message "Console handover"...

Searching the forums, I can't see a fix, or even a clue to what the error is?

Can anyone help?

Regards,

Mike

I can't - the kernel on the livecd doesn't even finishing initializing (as described above), so there is no file system to put the bootlog on, or retrieve it from.

Regards,

Mike

Console handover sounds like console output is being switched over to a serial line or something.
