This section describes the requirements for using local and remote media.
Local boot media requires a built-in storage device on the server, or an external storage device attached to the server.
You can start the network install from a redirected boot storage device or another networked system that exports an OS image over the network using a Pre-Boot eXecution environment (PXE).
Supported OS remote boot media sources can include:
DVD-ROM installation media
DVD-ROM ISO installation image media
PXE boot – Oracle Solaris 10 and 11 support PXE boots. However, once the PXE boot has been initiated, the Oracle Solaris 10 installation is accomplished using JumpStart while the Oracle Solaris 11 installation is accomplished using the Automated Installation (AI) image.
