Hello,

I am new to unix and am trying to install Solaris on an Intel Pentium 4 Processor, 3GHZ.  When I try to install Soalris 10, it boots from the cd drive, I select to install soalris as default and it comes back with the error "cannot display this video mode" after a couple of minutes.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,

Shocks

First check you hardware to make sure they can support by Solaris  (eg, your Graphic card )http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/

To get better hardware support try to use the latest OS release Solaris 10x86 6/06
http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/binaries_program.xml

also have a look at the following Soalris 10 docs/FAQ:
