No I cannot enter any command in the boot prom. It will not let me see where I type on the screen at the ok prompt. So what do I do to fix it? I typed boot CDROM -s and let it go overnight and do not read this CD-ROM at all. Any suggestions would be appreciated greatly.

How are you connected to the E450 ?
It might just be a faulty serial cable (no xmit).

Solaris 5.6
it is not excepting keyboard input. The only input I can do is stop-a. So how do I fix it? Do I need to format the drive and start over? Please help men do not want to trash this machine or sell it

Can you check nothing is connected to the serial port(s) ?
You can also try "stop-n", that should reset the nvram to factory default.

someone must have done a STOP-F forces. input and output to ttya. Input from the Keyboard is disabled except for L1-A on it.

Instead of buying a serial cable for the machine, I think it would be much more worth your while to try and find the manual for the EEPROM version that is on that machine; I cannot remember how, but there is a command (or two) that you can type in at the "ok" prompt to change its boot priorities.
