Solaris Install

I am trying to install Solaris 7 (x86) on my computer.  For some reason, Solaris cannot see my hardrive and quits the installation.  The hardrive is connected to a ATA66 controller.  Ive installed succesfully on other PC's so I cannot determine the cause.  How can I get Solaris to properly see my hardrive?

    I would recommend that you visit Sun web site to check whether your "Solaris 7 Device Configuration Assistant" (aka Solaris 7 boot disk) need to be updated or not.  The site it

   You need to know which release was your Solaris, and the info is written somewhere on your CD, or the boot disk, and even on the CD Folder.

   I hope you can get a kick-start from here.

Good Luck,

Thanks, I will give it a try.
No problem shipley,

Sometime, you need to patch the kernel with additional drivers.  I would recommend that you make a hard-copy of the readme file, and  follow step by step.  It should work.  Otherwise, please let us know.  Maybe we might need a much more detail info.  Such as, Computer model, Chipset, HDD controll chipset, etc.  
  Anyway, good luck.
