This chapter describes how to add a disk to an x86 based system.
For information on the procedures associated with adding a disk to an x86 based system, see x86: Adding a System Disk or a Secondary Disk (Task Map).
For overview information about disk management, see Chapter 10, Managing Disks (Overview). For step-by-step instructions on adding a disk to a SPARC based system, see Chapter 12, SPARC: Adding a Disk (Tasks).
Although the procedures that describe how to add a disk and create an fdisk partition can be used with a ZFS file systems, ZFS file system is not directly mapped to a disk or a disk slice. You must create a ZFS storage pool before creating a ZFS file system. For more information, see Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.
