Installed win2k3 after Solaris 10 and now it boots into win2k3 by default. Win2k3 and Solaris are installed on separate disks. The question is: can I modify the boot up using Solaris boot loader and have a menu choice for one or the other OS?

Are you getting choice to boot solaris? May be you can change the default boot from Windows.

It only boots into Windows and ignores the Solaris installed on the other drive. I was hoping to be able to install the Solaris boot loader on the primary drive and control the boot through that for each OS.

do you have the option in BIOS to boot from the other disk?

omarfarid,

Yes, we do have the ability to set the boot order for the drives but entering the bios to set the boot drive is not how we want the users making the OS boot choice.

I'll check out the article you linked this morning and see if that has a better solution.
