To Install From the Solaris Software - 1 CD or From a Network Installation Image

To use the Solaris installation program to install from the Solaris Software - 1 CD or from a network installation image on a boot server, follow these steps.

  1. Delete the contents of the disk.
  2. Before you install, create the service partition by using the diagnostics CD for your system.

    For information about how to create the service partition, see your hardware documentation.

  3. The installation program prompts you to choose a method for creating the Solaris partition.
  4. Boot the system.
  5. Select the Use rest of disk for Solaris partition option.

    The installation program preserves the service partition and creates the Solaris partition.

  6. Complete the installation.
