I am trying to install Solaris 10. The computer I'm installing to has no CDROM built in. Is it possible to boot from a USB CDROM at the ok prompt to install solaris 10? If so, please provide me the how to steps because I cannot get it to work for me.
I don't believe its possible.
Your best option is to install on another computer, setup a jumpstart server and netboot from there.
