Please get a new disk, put it in the second slot, above the existing drive.
then reboot in single, do a : dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 of=/dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s2
shutdown and poweroff the system and swap the disks around.
boot up and youre system will work !?
this is just a very cheap way, nothing for a system with users, customers
etc... on it !!!
this is a x86/intel forum not Sparc !
