Installation of Solaris 9 on X86 AMD+Nforce2 Chipset MB

Installation of Solaris 9 on X86 AMD+Nforce2 Chipset MB

Post by xingan » Fri, 07 Jan 2005 04:42:11

Hello All,

this is my first post here: When I installed the downloaded Solaris 9
onto my AMD AthlonXP + Nforce2 Chipset machine, It hung for about 20
minutes in "loading the driver ata.bef" and after that, everything
went smooth. When I finally boot into the freshly-installed Solaris
system, it again stopped at "loading the driver ata.bef..." blah blah
and I have to wait for about 20 minutes until the next stage. I
searched over the google but really can not find the answer. Could
anybody kindly enough to give me a hand on this? TIA!


1. Q: Solaris(Intel) on MB with MVP3 chipset


     Will Solaris 7(Intel) work with motherboard with MVP3 chipset?  On
Sun's HCL, none of the motherboard listed uses that chipset.  Will there be
any problem?
All other devices I have are on the HCL.
