x86: Device Configuration Assistant Screen

Note –

In this Oracle Solaris release, the Device Configuration Assistant Screen has been replaced with the GRUB menu on x86 based systems. For more information, see Booting an x86 Based System by Using GRUB (Task Map).

In the Solaris 10 initial release, the autoboot process bypasses the Device Configuration Assistant menus, unless you press ESC when prompted by the system during the boot phase. If you choose to use the Device Configuration Assistant, the following screen is displayed.

used to install the Solaris operating environment, add a driver,
