Boot Media Options Requirements
This section describes the requirements for using local and remote media.
Local Boot Media Requirements
Local boot media requires a built-in storage device on the server, or an
external storage device attached to the server.
Remote Boot Media Requirements
You can start the network install from a redirected boot storage device or
another networked system that exports an OS image over the network using a
Pre-Boot eXecution environment (PXE).
Supported OS remote boot media sources can include:
DVD-ROM installation media
DVD-ROM ISO installation image media
PXE boot – Oracle Solaris 11 support PXE boots. However, once the PXE boot has been initiated, the Oracle Solaris 11 installation is accomplished using the Automated Installation (AI) installer.
