System Requirements for LiveCD and Text Installations

The following table outlines requirements for installing the Oracle Solaris 11 release using a LiveCD installation image or a text installation image.

To check the minimum memory requirement for the current release, see Oracle Solaris 11 Release Notes.

Note - The text installer requires less memory than the LiveCD installer. The exact minimum requirement varies depending on system specifications. But, if your system does not have enough memory to run the GUI installer, use the text installer instead.

Disk space
To check the disk space requirements for the current release, see Oracle Solaris 11 Release Notes.
