Need to install SunOS 4.1.1 ASAP
Posted on 2003-10-24
I am having really lame problems with trying to get SunOS 4.1.1. installed on a Sparc 2.
First of all:
IF I keep getting a message on startup about "IDPROM contents are invalid" will that keep me from get the OS installed?
I have the following setup:
A Connor 1080S Hard Drive -- DEVICE: 0,0
HP C1716T DEVICE: 1,0
SONY CDROM DEVICE: 6,0
I need to install the SunOS 4.1.1. CD and get a basic SunView Environment going.
Assume I am new to UNIX: please tell me in detail what exact steps I need to take to get this done. I have a $3000 dollar payday in store if I can get this OS installed and get the HP (MO DRIVE) drive installed, mounted and ready to read disks.
I have asked some questions before on this!
So far after installing the miniroot, it reboots and gives me a error:
"the file just loaded and does not appear to be executeable"
What the crap? This install is anything but easy.
I know it is possible to install, since I know I did it before.
My bloodpressure is just not liking this.
I know this is easy for many of you to answer, but it is worth 500 since I need it yesterday. I mean last month.
