This section explains how to install a supported Microsoft Windows operating system using the Sun Installation Assistant (SIA). SIA assists in the installation of supported operating systems and requires a licensed retail version of the operating system distribution media to be available locally or remotely to complete the task.
SIA provides OS-level device drivers that are certified by Oracle for optional accessory cards and other system hardware. Using SIA eliminates the need to obtain and prepare OS-level device drivers on separate media before installing the operating system.
Note - For a complete list of system and OS-level device drivers that are provided and installed by SIA, refer to the SIA CD/DVD sia_readme.html file and the Product Notes for your server.
