I tried installing Solaris 7 x86 with an updated boot disk. Once again the installation failed. The actual errors are as follows:
1. Cannot determine Boot Device name. Please check machine 'boot device' and diag-switch'.
2. "No Disks found." Check to make sure disks are cabeled and powered up.
I have a Pentium III 500 128 MB RAM. There are two hard disks connected to a ATA66 controller. The first hardisk, configured as Master, is 20GB and contains Win98; My second hard disk, configured as Slave, is 13GB in size. I plan on using all 13GB of second disk for the UNIX operating system.
In addition to this, I cannot seem to bring up the format utility from solaris to convert the 'free-space' of second hard disk to unix partitions.
I also tried installing Caldera 2.2 as a test to see if it can find my hard disks. The installation also failed as well.
What can I do to make Solaris (or LINUX) see my hard disks? Also, how can I bring up the format utility in Solaris?
