Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Network-Based Installations

ProcedureTo Install Software From a Network Installation Image or From the Solaris 10 DVD

To install the software from a net installation image or from the Solaris 10 DVD over the network, follow these steps.

  1. Delete the contents of the disk.

  2. Before you install, create the service partition by using the diagnostics CD for your system.

    For information about how to create the service partition, see your hardware documentation.

  3. Boot the system from the network.

    The Customize fdisk Partitions screen is displayed.

  4. To load the default boot disk partition layout, click Default.

    The installation program preserves the service partition and creates the Solaris partition.
