How to pass OK prompt boot parameters from command line on Solaris x64?

While working with Solaris 10 x64, there isn’t an easy way to enter OK prompt to pass in OK prompt boot parameters. So, I run the following command:

reboot -- -m verbose

“–” dash-dash enabled me to pass in OK prompt boot parameters. In this case, the OK prompt boot parameters above is “-m verbose” This will show additional verbose messages during boot if I choose the transient option in the Grub menu.

  1. I saw this title, and I was like, Solaris X86/X84, and I could not believe Sun would port Solaris to the IMSAI Control Computer which has an Intel 8084 CPU. But then I realized the author of this message made a typo, and the meant to sat Solaris X86_64. Though it would have been Uber geeky cool to see Solaris running on an IMSAI 8084.
