Initial Installation of the Solaris OS

Initial installation fails

Solution: If the Solaris installation fails, you must restart the installation. To restart the installation, boot the system from the Solaris Operating System DVD, the Solaris Software - 1 CD, or from the network.

You cannot uninstall the Solaris software after the software has been partially installed. You must restore your system from a backup or begin the Solaris installation process again.

/cdrom/cdrom0/SUNWxxxx/reloc.cpio: Broken pipe

Description: This error message is informational and does not affect the installation. The condition occurs when a write on a pipe does not have a reading process.

Solution: Ignore the message and continue with the installation.

WARNING: CHANGE DEFAULT BOOT DEVICE (x86 based systems only)

Cause: This is an informational message. The default boot device set in the system's BIOS might be set to a device that requires you to use the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant to boot the system.

Solution: Continue with the installation and, if necessary, change the system's default boot device specified in the BIOS after you install the Solaris software to a device that does not require the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant.

x86 only - If you are using the locale keyword to test a custom JumpStart profile for an initial installation, the pfinstall -D command fails to test the profile. For a workaround, see the error message “could not select locale,” in the section, Upgrading the Solaris OS.
