For some English-only versions of the Solaris 8 Installation CD, the installation program enables you to insert the Solaris 8 Software 2 of 2 CD at the point the installation program requested the Solaris 8 Software 1 of 2 CD.
If the incorrect CD has been inserted, the installation program attempts to use it even though it can no longer install the Solaris operating environment.
If you are performing a default installation, the following message is displayed in the summary panel's Details window:
ERROR: Could not load the media (/cdrom)" error message
Workaround: Insert the Solaris 8 Software 1 of 2 CD when requested. If you inserted the Solaris 8 Software 2 of 2 CD after a blank screen was displayed, you need to restart the installation by beginning with the "Boot CD-ROM" step.
