    Default sun ultra10 not booting

    This morning I turned on the screen of my ultra-10 and I found a error
    message "message overflow on /dev/minor#6 minor#6 -- syslogd
    syslogd(1M) running?

    The computer was not responding on the keyboard and or mouse so had
    hade to do a hard reboot. After this this system was getting on-line
    online. However the problem now is that it starts like this after a
    couple of reboots from th OK prompt:

    Reboot with command: boot
    Boot device: disk:a File args args:
    Shot 0x2000 0x2000 chars read
    disk read error
    Shot 0x2000 0x2000 chars read
    disk read error
    boot: cannot find sparcv9/krtld/krtld
    boot: eeror loading interpreter (sparcv9/krtld/krtld)
    Elf64 read error.
    boot failed
    Enter filename [/sun4u/sun4u/sparcv9/unix/unix]:

    I do not have a clue how to solve this problem.... can I force a disk
    repair repait command from the OK prompt to try and solve this
    problem.... Anybody ever had something like this?

    Regards,
    Johan.

    That looks like hardware. It made it into the kernel so the blocks
    containing the bootstrap blocks are intact. But either the directory
    tree has been smashed or some blocks went bad (small scale head crash).

    At least you know the drive is spinning.

    You can boot from the installation CD-ROM, go into single user mode
    from it, and try fsck on the device from there. It will attempt to
    repair the damage. Given the messages above it is unlikely to
    succeed. Also run format from there and do a surface ysis to
    reassign bad blocks. If there are only a few bad blocks the disk
    will become usable. But once a drive starts giving new bad blocks it
    will give more and more of them.

    The problem sounds kinda hardware like, you may have to boot off your
    Solaris CD and use format to see if you can do any repair on the disk.
    You'll probably have to do FSCK after doing this at that point you
    should be able to pull off the data by mounting the paritions (hoping
    that the disk isn't completly ed)
