Solaris install problems
Posted on 2005-04-30
I have two hard drives in my system. One is running XP and the other I want to run Solaris 9 on. First of all is this possible? I have disk one set as primary master with a cd-rom as slave and disk two set as secondary master. I want to install solaris on disk two and use boot magic to boot into either system. XP is running fine on disk one. When I try and install Solaris from the cd as the boot disk I get as far as four drop down menus asking me what partition you want to use. There can only be one x86 boot per system. The partitions must be a minimum size of 30. There must be a Solaris partition. Also, I hear there must be a dos partition. When an install is done on Intel my understanding is the x86 boot is suppose to go on the c drive but in a new unix
partition. I don't quite understand but I don't see why I can't get Solaris on the 2nd HDD?
