A strange problem when boot

I have installed solaris9 08/03 in the first parmary partition,there is a strange problem when I boot the system
If I succeed in boot the system succe at the first time,I will be defeated at the second time,but I will succeed at the third time and then defeat at the forth time ,and so on.
Monitor display as follow:
SunOS Release 5.9 Version Generic_112234-07 32-bit
Copyright 1983-2003 Sun Microsystem,Inc..All right reserved.
Use is subject to license terms.
(If I succeed,the information will be cleaned and system will be normal booted. If I defeated,there will be some waring information at the bottom as follow and nothing response)
timeout:abort request,target=0 lun=0
timeout:abort device,target=0 lun=0
timeout:reset target,target=0 lun=0
timeout:reset bus,target=0 lun=0
I have to press reset at the time.The system will be normal booted next time.

Check the DMA settings in your BIOS.

it actually appears as though solaris is having a hard time accessing and recognizing the hard drive. If you can boot into single user mode, and use the drvconfig and disks command, this may help...
