I got a 10G Harddisk and wanted to make the disk have Windows XP &
Solaris 9 in dual boot mode.
I install Windows XP first with following partitions:
1. 500M FAT32
2. 4.5G FAT32 (Windows XP here)
3. 4.5G FAT32
When I tried to install Solaris 9, the installer asked which kernal I
should boot from, I selected Harddisk but it returned me a error
message, then I selected CD, the installer proceed and boot X-Windows.
I found the problem like this:
Total disk size is 19885 cylinders
Cylinder size is 1008 (512 byte) blocks
Partition Status Type Start End Length %
1 Active DOS-BIG 0 1019 1020 5
2 EXT LBA 1020 19858 18839 95
Select One of the following
1. Create a partition
2. Specify the active partition
3. Delete a partition
4. Exit (update disk configuration and exit)
5. Cancel (exit without updating disk configuration)
I have no idea what I should do next to got the plan done? What I
should I do next? Should I install any software like partition
commander or patition magic to make it works?
Any screen dump to let me know what I should to complete this also?
