What prompt do you exactly get? If its something like OpenSolaris Console login then please do not enter anything there. Just wait for the GUI Login window to come up.

Let me know the exact point and the error message you get and we can solve it.

Firstly I choose Open solaris 2009.06 at the first page ...then it did some mounting and all..

Further,it asks to choose a language for keyboard layout { i choose 43} then for desktop layout { i choose 6} then foll. comes one by one..

"user selected english
configuring devices
mounting cdroms
reading ZFS configuratiom:done

open solaris console login"

then i kept it on for 1/2 hour but it did not responded ...any sort of GUI login window {as told by you :thank you for that :clap2: :cloud9:}
then i tried to write something in the login but it did not write and system got crashed there {as it got halted ,nothing working,so i need to cut off power supply to restart}..............

Please help me out.. :hissyfit: . :Fingerx:

Can you please tell me the config of your machine? I have not encountered this problem in past. I would like to fix it.

Also, if possible, can you please try and use the CD to install OpenSolaris on virtualbox. Don't install, just try and boot from the CD using virtualbox. I want to eliminate the chance of the media being corrupt.

Try burning the iso in 8x or lower speed. Well...If you face login problem then you can try logging in by username: jack and password: jack(This is the default user for OpenSolaris) but as said by others if you don't enter anything and wait it automatically logs you in.

May be there is some other problem. Test your RAM with Memtest86+. And try to burn the image in lower speed and try again.
