yes, 10/11/12 beta work without a problem(and really fast), 8/9 have been
reported to work at least since 0.6.0. with the "ide" fix committed to that
The problem seems related with "ide" emulation and real mode drivers, so I
don't think an older BSD can reproduce.
I will test if an older BSD is also affected by this, I can also provide
you a place for you to get the versions 8/9 x86 iso, if that is ok
in any way.
Many thanks for the time on checking this one.

Unable to boot Solaris 8/9 x86 under Fedora 24
Status in QEMU:
QEMU emulator version 2.6.2 (qemu-2.6.2-4.fc24), Copyright (c) 2003-2008
Try several ways without success, I think it was a regression because problem
seems to be related with ide fixed on 0.6.0:
- int13 CDROM BIOS fix (aka Solaris x86 install CD fix)
- int15, ah=86 BIOS fix (aka Solaris x86 hardware probe hang up fix)
Solaris 10/11 works without a problem, also booting with "scsi" will
circumvent initial problem, but later found problems related with
"scsi" cdrom boot and also will not found the "ide" disk device.
