Running Solaris and Windows

Running Solaris and Windows

Post by Cameron Cummin » Mon, 30 Sep 1996 04:00:00



Is it possible to run both Solaris and Windows on the one system and if
so how is this done?

Any advise or directions on where to find documentation would be
appreciated.

Try WABI or SoftWindoze.

If it ain't analogue, it ain't music.

Yeah, but WABI has it's limits.  I have Win95, Solaris and Linux all
living happily together on one computer.  (Win NT 4 will soon join.)

I have two EIDE (shoulda got SCSI) HDs, the first is 1.6GB and the
second is 2.5GB.  The 1.6 has a 600MB Win95 partition and then a
1GB Solaris partition, while the 2.5 has two 750MB Win95 partitions
(for storage of gunk) and then 1GB for Linux (being booted with loadlin).

To get them coexisting, just install Win95 (or whatever) on your system.
Be sure when you use fdisk to leave a suitable sized partition available
for Solaris.  Then just install Solaris.  The key thing is that windows
should go on first, and then Solaris... not the other way around since
MS's OSes are big stupid beasts.

Good luck...
