From the boot loader, Pc-Check can view only the first or second hard disk on the system. The software automatically installs the diagnostic partition on the first bootable disk. To add the diagnostic partition on the first bootable disk:
Insert the Tools and Drivers DVD into the DVD drive.
Reboot the workstation.
The workstation boots from the DVD drive.
If the workstation does not boot from the DVD drive, access the BIOS Setup Utility and make the DVD drive the primary boot device.
At the Tools and Drivers DVD main menu, type 1 to run Hardware Diagnostics.
The Hardware Diagnostics menu appears.
From the main menu, choose Create Diagnostic Partition.
If the first bootable disk is clear of partitions, the Sun Microsystems Partitioning Utility window appears. It states
“Your primary hard disk is not partitioned. Would you like to partition it now?”
Select Yes, and press the Enter key.
A window appears stating:
“Partitioning complete. Your machine will now be restarted.”
If the first bootable disk is not clear of partitions, a window appears stating that the software is unable to create a hardware diagnostic partition because there are already partitions on the disk.
If this happens, repeat this procedure after you remove the partitions as described in the section, To Erase the Currently Installed OS in Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Linux and Solaris Operating System Installation Guide or in the section, Chapter 4, Preparing Disks for the Operating System, in Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Windows Operating System Installation Guide.
Press the Enter key to reboot your workstation.
