The following guidelines apply when you are using a storage drive connected to a supported HBA to install an operating system (OS).
For SGX-SAS6-REM-Z – You can install an OS on a drive without creating a RAID volume. However, if you want to install the OS from an OS install disk, you will need to create the RAID volume before installing the OS.
For SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z – You must create a RAID volume before installing an OS on a drive. You must also make the drive bootable.
For information about creating RAID volumes and making drives bootable before installing an OS, refer to: Preparing the Storage Drives to Install an Operating System in Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Installation Guide.
