Can't Install Solaris 11 in VMware Workstation 16 in MX Linux

Gaming_Dodge99Sep 7 2021

I have downloaded the SPARC Text Installer ISO of Solaris 11 from the official download page. After that, I tried to create a VM using the VMware workstation, but eventually, the OS does not seem to boot from the ISO file.
This happens when I start the virtual machine.
