skip additional software install

During installation I selected "Additional software" installation. Now after reboot the system always starting CDE and asking to install that software from a seperate CD that I don't have. I can't skip this process anyway.

What I need to do to skip this installation process? any idea?

I don't know, you may try to boot in single user mode and try to figure out what is triggering that.

Perhaps some file in /, or some rc in /etc/rc*/* or some SMF task.

Not easy if you aren't already familiar with Solaris.
