It's one of those totally insane things Sun missed. The other way around
is also impossible. In Solaris 8 you could set up a jumpstart server
from the iso-files loopback mounted. It was 10-15x faster than from the CD/DVD
which is the only way to make it work in S9.
The 'put the IDE-drive in the X1' is the method with greatest chance
of success. Keep fiddling until the drive is found via 'probe-ide' from
the ok prompt. Then boot from it using the command 'boot disk1' or similar.
'Boot cdrom' will probably not work as the X1:s were never fitted with one.
