I'm trying to coerce my Sun Blade 100 with PCi II Pro card to
run Windoze 2000 - and I'm not having much luck. On a fresh
install of Solaris 8 7/01, I can install the Sun PCi II 2.2.1
software, no problem (once the *y volume management stuff
had been sorted out!). I can even install Windoze 2000 Professional
(Professional? Hah! Now THERE's a misnomer if I ever heard
one). I get as far as inputting the enabling code and assigning
a hostname and an Admin password. Then Win2k does it's reboot
bit - and then the sunpci process promptly exits: not even a
"by your leave"!
So, WTF is going on? According to the docs, the setup I'm using
is supported (I'm using a 2048 MB virtual C: drive*, BTW) - I
even upgraded my OBP to the latest.
A serach on google revealed some similar problems, but I couldn't
find anything with my exact setup.
* I can't believe M$ are STILL using drive letters - I mean, come
Any help greatfully received!
