Boot the Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Assistant from the boot diskette or the installation CD.
Select Specific Scan to identify only the automatically detected devices.
Select each device in the system that did not cause the initial hang.
Go to the Device Tasks menu, select View/Edit Devices, and examine the list of devices provided to determine if the problem device conflicts with another device.
This method might not work if a hardware conflict interferes with the ability of the device scan to correctly determine the configuration of a device.
If a conflict is found for a device that requires setting jumpers and switches, turn the system off, manually change settings for the problem device, turn the system on, boot the Configuration Assistant, and go to Step 5.
If a conflict is found for a device that requires a manufacturer's configuration utility, do the following:
Insert the manufacturer's configuration utility diskette.
Change device settings.
Boot the Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Assistant from the boot diskette or the installation CD, and go to Step 5.
If a conflict is not found, go to Step 2 in "Providing Information About the Device Manually". You don't have to reboot.
Select Specific Scan.
When the scan is successful, go to the Boot Solaris menu and select a device to boot from.
If you plan to boot or install from a CD-ROM, select CD.
If you plan to boot or install using the network and your machine is registered as a netinstall client, select NET.
If you plan to boot from the machine's installed hard disk, select DISK.
Boot and install the Solaris software.
