Solaris Express CE and Grub message with Toshiba laptop

Recently I downloaded Solaris Express Community Edition DVD (MD5 is OK) , when I installed on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop A100-785 it gave the message below :

GUN GRUB version 0.95 (638 K lower/1037760 K upper memory)

[Email BASH-Like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Any where else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename. ]

I found all these threads through my search

But I could not find how this problem would be fixed

I 'm not sure I understand the question entirely:
WHEN are you getting this message?
During installation, during boot-up, or ... what...?
