Hi all,

I have a Sun e450 and I can not power it on, the problem is the keyswitch that switches form off/on/diag/keyboard lock got damaged in a move and was totally smashed, the rest of the computer is ok. Now because their switch is smashed I can not get the unit to power on. Doe anyone have a switch/key that i can buy or know which sites to jump to just put the unit into "ON" mode then i can power on/off form a standard sun keyboard.

Also what is the last version of solaris that can run on this, I am hearing that 10 might run but the distro is only on DVD not CD.

Any help would be appreciated.

Matt

I seem to recall running Solaris 9 on the one we had for a year or two after pulling it from frontline duty and then junking it and its bigger brother E3500.
