Ensure that the following requirements are met:
If you want to configure RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) on the server's storage drives, you must do so before you install the operating system. For instructions for configuring RAID, see the Installation, Configuring Server Drives for OS Installation.
Note - If the server is equipped with the Sun Storage 6 Gb/s SAS PCIe RAID, Internal HBA (SGX-SAS6-R-INT-Z), you must create RAID and a Bootable Volume before installing the operating system; otherwise, the HBA will not be able to identify the server's storage drives.
The console display options should have been selected and set up prior to performing the installation. For more information about this option and setup instructions, see Selecting the Console Display Option.
The boot media option should have been selected and set up prior to performing the installation. For more information about this option and setup instructions, see Selecting the Boot Media Option.
The storage drive to be used as the installation target option should have been determined and set up prior to starting this installation procedure. For more information about the installation target storage drive and setup instructions, see Selecting the Installation Target Option.
Verify that the BIOS settings are set to the defaults. For instructions on how to verify and, if necessary, set the BIOS settings, see Verify the BIOS Factory Defaults.
If you are performing a local installation, have the Oracle Solaris installation media available to insert into the attached physical CD/DVD-ROM drive or into the USB port when prompted.

If you are using an Oracle Solaris image, ensure that the Oracle Solaris ISO image is accessible from the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console and ensure you have selected CD-ROM Image from the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Devices menu.
Gather the Oracle Solaris operating system documentation so that you can use it in conjunction with the instructions provided in this section. Oracle Solaris OS documentation is available at:
