I am attempting, and I stress attempting to install the latest version of
Solaris. I've downloaded the DVD version from the Sun website and I've tried
running through the installation.
I had someone who really hasn't a clue reading the screen for me and
although I have gone through the installation a few times now I have still
been unable to get past the first boot. The reasons for this are:
1. The first time it came back asking me to insert the DVD but it was
checking the wrong drive. Easiest solution at the time was to disconnect
the problem drive and reboot. That didn't work so I tried reinstalling.
Next time I got an out of range error on my screen. This happens with other
distributions but I can run sax2 to fix it. Problem here is I can't change
to a console using control alt F1.
I'm very stuck and would appreciate some help.
Oh to make things worse, I seem to have deleted the windows partition as
well. Some of you might look on that as a positive but I had a lot stored on
it. This weekend is *Not* going well!
