Hi All,

Could not find any solution other than changing the NVROM.
Finally, we ordered NVROM from sun and changed it and system is up and
running now.

Thanks to everybody who replied.


Paul Wilkinson, Darren Dunham who guided me through following web site
which tells more about NVROM faq.

Thanks once again.

Best Regards,
