Error with console keyboard - Sun Solaris

Hello: Have Sun Blade 100 and was re-installing Solaris 9. Installation was going fine but when it time came to enter root password, keyboard did not work. I powered on/off and I get the following message: Can't find driver for console framebuffer. Error with console keyboard. fsck finds some errors, and I can't enter root password cause keyboard won't work. How will I get the system to boot from the cd-rom so I can fix whatever went wrong here? Stop A won't bring me to OK prompt. btw: I tested the keyboard on another system and it worked fine. Thanks...

    Default Error with console keyboard

    Hello:

    Have Sun Blade 100 and was re-installing Solaris 9.
    Installation was going fine but when it time came to enter root password,
    keyboard did not work. I powered on/off and I get the following message:

    Can't find driver for console framebuffer.
    Error with console keyboard.

    fsck finds some errors, and I can't enter root password cause keyboard won't
    work.

    How will I get the system to boot from the cd-rom so I can fix whatever went
    wrong here? Stop A won't bring me to OK prompt.

    btw: I tested the keyboard on another system and it worked fine.

    Thanks

    Have you tried another keyboard on this system? I had a Netra T1 that
    had a dodgy serial port (aka LOM port used for keyboard access), and the
    M/B had to be replaced.

    There's a bug where an upgrade from Solaris 8 to Solaris 9
    doesn't install all the USB packages, so the USB subsystem
    doesn't know how to talk to the keyboard. (the OBP knows,
    but the Solaris 9 kernel doesn't)

    The workaround is to either perform a new install of Solaris 9
    (not an upgrade), or boot from CDROM and install the missing
    USB packages with pkgadd. If you back out the install to
    Solaris 8, you can install a patch that fixes the problem and
    allows you to do the upgrade to Solaris 9.

    At the moment, I can't remember the patch number.
