Sun has released Solaris 10 CDs for free usage / download. Now on the oracle site I can't find them. Where can I find Solaris 10 for Sparc 64bit? I have Sun Blade 1500.

Note that while the software is "free to download", under the (post-Sun) Oracle license terms you may not use it in Production without a valid support contract. – James O'Gorman Mar 2 '12 at 22:55

Oracle doesn't offer the CD images any more, it seems, but they do have a DVD image for download. You can either hook a DVD drive to your Blade, or mount the DVD on another system and install from net.

Did the Blade 1500 come with a DVD-rom already?
