Recently I downloaded the cd's for solarious 10 from sun micro systems. I burn't the ISO's like I always do and then restarted with disk 1 in the drive. The problem is that no matter what disk is in when I restart I can't get solarious to boot. And to stop the simple question my computer is set to boot off CDROM and I used Nero to burn the cd's

Solaris isnt Linux, it is a true UNIX OS - But I will do my best, since they are pretty similar.

Firstly, you might want to try them in another computer. There was an issue with Mandrake Linux which prevented the CDs from booting on come machines, but not others. If they wont boot, then you might be able to create a bootable Floppy Disk to do it on behalf of the CD.

Did you check the integrity of the ISOs?

If it still wont work you could try the DVD version.

Opening the iso image with magiciso for verifying the iso image has the bootable information. after that, Using Magic ISO burner to burn it onto dvd. I have successfully made a bootable Solaris DVD.
