Initial installation fails
Solution: If the Oracle Solaris installation fails, you must restart the installation. To restart the installation, boot the system from the Oracle Solaris Operating System DVD, the Oracle Solaris Software - 1 CD, or from the network.
You cannot uninstall the Oracle Solaris software after the software has been partially installed. You must restore your system from a backup or begin the Oracle Solaris installation process again.
/cdrom/cdrom0/SUNWxxxx/reloc.cpio: Broken pipe
Description: This error message is informational and does not affect the installation. The condition occurs when a write on a pipe does not have a reading process.
Solution: Ignore the message and continue with the installation.
WARNING: CHANGE DEFAULT BOOT DEVICE (x86 based systems only)
Cause: This is an informational message. The default boot device set in the system's BIOS might be set to a device that requires you to use the Oracle Solaris Device Configuration Assistant to boot the system.
Solution: Continue with the installation and, if necessary, change the system's default boot device specified in the BIOS after you install the Oracle Solaris software to a device that does not require the Oracle Solaris Device Configuration Assistant.
x86 only - If you are using the locale keyword to test a custom JumpStart profile for an initial installation, the pfinstall -D command fails to test the profile. For a workaround, see the error message “could not select locale,” in the section, Upgrading the Oracle Solaris OS.
