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?

Shipley,
    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
   http://soldc.sun.com/support/drivers/hcl/index.html

   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,

Samri

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.
