SOURCE: I can not open my bios
If you have tried the solution below, you should also put your bios in "configuration mode" Near the cmos battery (looks like a round watch battery), you will see 3 pins with a jumper (small plastic connector) on the first two pins. With your computer off, place the jumper on the 2nd and 3rd pin, restart your computer. This should force it to go into your bios settings. Don't forget to save your configuration, and then replace the jumper back to the 1st and 2nd pins. Let us know if this helps, Best regards, nightdiver

your bios has been corrupted.
The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.
Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.
Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r
Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:
py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot
Remove disk and restart computer

As long as it's either Intel or SPARC (Intel in your case), Solaris will install just fine as long as you meet the minimum requirements.

Here you maybe should not set the manual setting to 800 mghz.
Use the default setting as you can save and reboot it.
There may be a problem with the way the bios sees the memory. Also examine your manual carefully for indications of how the memory needs to be installed.
Some boards require two or more modules to be installed, and will not run correctly with out the modules required installed. Some of these boards will not allow mixing anything except exact sets. That is to say each module must be the same. Some boards are far more tolerant of kinds and makes of modules.
With out the memory, you will not have anything to run on.
So, I would suggest to let the bios set what it sees.
"Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module
(DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts
• Support for:
. Non-ECC, 1.8 V, DDR2 800/667 MHz memory
. Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
. Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs (except double-sided
DIMMs with x16 organization)
. Memory configurations listed below:
• Up to 2.0 GB utilizing 256 Mb technology
• Up to 4.0 GB utilizing 512 Mb or 1 Gb technology
• Up to 8.0 GB utilizing 1 Gb technology
• A minimum of 512 MB of total memory is required"
To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel ® SDRAM memory specifications, the
board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, you will see a
notification to this effect on the screen at power up. The BIOS will attempt to
configure the memory controller for normal operation."
So, the memory is dependent on the configuration. It appears that this board requires 4 modules at once to be installed, depends on the amount of memory per module as well.
Be careful about flashing the bios. By doing that you can ruin the bios and make the computer completely unusable until you get and install a new bios module, if you do not pick the exact correct flash version.
