|Getting Started With Oracle Solaris 11 Express Oracle Solaris 11 Express 11/10|
When installing Oracle Solaris 11 Express, consider the following information:
The installer on the live CD ISO image is for 32-bit or 64-bit x86 platforms only.
If you want to install the operating system on a SPARC based system, use the text installer or the AI tool.
The Oracle Solaris 11 Express installers cannot upgrade your operating system. However, after you have installed Oracle Solaris 11 Express, you can update all of the packages on your system that have available updates by using the Image Packaging System. See Updating Software Packages on Your System.
Note - You can upgrade from the OpenSolaris 2009.06 release to Oracle Solaris 11 Express by using a specific procedure. For instructions, see Oracle Solaris 11 Express Release Notes .
The interactive installers can perform an initial installation on an Oracle Solaris x86 partition, or for the text installer, on a SPARC slice. Or, the installation can use the whole disk.
Caution - The installation overwrites all of the software and data on the targeted device.
