Subject: [SATLUG] sun blade is not seeing boot disc


I have tried a number of steps but for whatever reason, the system never
sees the cdrom as a bootable disc.

I have tried mnt. I have tried forcing it to boot to the cdr. I also tried
typing these commands but that was pointless:

boot cdrom -s
format -e
label 0

This is a Sun Blade 1500 that was donated to me. It has its original hard
drive and I'm trying to reload Solaris and format the drive. Is there
anything resembling a bios/boot menu that I can choose from?

Thank you,
