sol 8 installation on intel rebooting

What installation media do you use? If you use CDs, where did you get it? I know it was possible to download ISO CD Images with Solaris8 for Intel from SUN Website. I have used that images and installed Solaris8 on couple different machines without any problem. Another thing - try to install from the same media to another PC clone. If that installation will work fine, may be it's really hardware incompatibility.

Good luck.

Dont run the installation from the Install CD. Use CD1 for booting and installation.
