I have a Sun Ultra 1 which I cannot boot.   After power up  the post
information is displayed as follows:

Sun Ultra 1 SBus (UltraSPARC 167MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 3.5, 128 MB memory installed, Serial #8828534.
Ethernet address 8:0:20:86:b6:76, Host ID: 8086b676.

and the memory initialised and then nothing.

If I go into OpenBoot and run OK boot cdrom to boot off a Solaris
install CD the same happens.

There are no errors regarding boot failures.

I'm sure I just missing something obvious,   does anyone have ideas
what it is?


David Glass suggested that I check the memory so I removed two of the
memory sticks and then the Ultra1 booted.   Re-seated the removed memory
and the Ultra1 now booted correctly with the full amount of memory.

I am presuming that one or the memory sticks became dislodged in
transit and then as the memory was initialised it did not complete this
process and the unit locked up.

David - thanks for the suggestion.
