The XpReburn script creates an installation CD-ROM for Windows, or an ISO CD image, that incorporates Intel platform-specific and Intel RAID drivers.
You can use the CD-ROM created by XpReburn to install the Windows OS without having to separately install platform-specific and RAID drivers.
The Tools and Drivers DVD includes the XpReburn scripts. Further information about XpReburn is available in the readme.txt file within the /utilities/XPReburn_x.x.zip file (where x.x is the version number).
To use XpReburn to create a Windows OS installation CD, you need the following:
A system running Solaris 10, RHEL, or SUSE
Blank CD-R or CD-RW
Windows XP CD (retail media only not OEM version)
The Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Tools and Drivers DVD
On a Solaris OS, Red Hat, or SUSE system, insert the Tools and Drivers DVD.
As superuser, create a temporary directory with at least 1.2 GB of space. For example:
# mkdir /files
Copy the Xp Reburn_version.zip file to that directory, for example:
# cp /utilities/XpReburn_version.zip /files
Eject the Tools and Drivers DVD and insert your retail Windows XP CD.
Unzip the Xp Reburn_version.zip file. For example:
# unzip -q XpReburn_version.zip
Run the XpReburn script. For example:
After the ISO image is created, insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW to burn the image.
After the CD is created, insert the CD into the workstation and boot from it.
After the OS installation is complete, install the graphics and audio drivers as described inTo Install the NVIDIA Graphics and RealTek Audio Drivers.
When done, proceed to Chapter 7, Updating the Critical Drivers and Software.
