Solaris 8 Installation Supplement

IA: LBA Required When Using the Solaris Web Start 3.0 Installation Method

If you want to use the Solaris 8 Web Start 3.0 installation method on the Solaris 8 Installation CD to install or upgrade, the BIOS and SCSI driver for the default boot disk must support Logical Block Addressing (LBA). LBA allows the machine to boot beyond the 1024 cylinder limit and across Solaris disk slices.

If the default boot disk BIOS and SCSI driver do not support LBA, use the Solaris 1 of 2 CD to install or upgrade to the Solaris 8 operating environment.
