System Requirements for Live Media and Text Installations

To check the minimum memory and disk space requirements for installing the Oracle Solaris 11.3 release using a Live Media installation image or a text installation image, see Oracle Solaris 11.3 Release Notes.

The text installer requires less memory than the Live Media installer. The exact minimum requirement varies depending on system specifications. If your system does not have enough memory to run the GUI installer, use the text installer instead.

Note -  Non Oracle x86 systems with Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) must have the Intel VT-d parameter set to Enabled before you install Oracle Solaris on those systems. Refer to their respective documentation for instructions to set this parameter.
