Solaris 10 5/09 Release Notes

x86: Installation From CD Media Appears to Hang After Reboot Selection (6270371)

A problem might occur when you are using the Solaris installation program and are using CD media. After the installation of the Solaris software from the Solaris 10 5/09 Software CD - 4, the following prompt is displayed:


Press Reboot now to continue.

If you press Reboot, the system might not respond. The installation is successful. However, the error prevents the installation program from exiting normally. Consequently, the typical postinstallation cleanup and system reboot cannot occur.

An error message similar to the following example is logged in /tmp/disk0_install.log file:
