(Doc ID 1414045.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 8/11 U10 [Release 10.0]
Solaris Operating System - Version 10 9/10 U9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On a Solaris 10 x86 system, after patching and activating a new BE (Boot Environment) using Live Upgrade, it failed to reboot with an error:

           GRUB loading Stage 2

After the error appears, the system will reboot by itself and will go into an infinite loop.


Installed patches (kernel patch 141445-09 or later) on a newly created BE (boot environment) and activated it.
