Solaris Express Installation Guide: Planning for Installation and Upgrade
Previous Next

Preface

This book describes planning your installation or upgrade with the SolarisTM Operating System (OS) on both networked and nonnetworked SPARC® and x86 architecture based systems. This book also provides overviews of several technologies that relate to installation such as Solaris Zones, GRUB based booting, and the creation of RAID-1 volumes during installation.

This book does not include instructions about how to set up system hardware or other peripherals.


Note - This Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC and x86 families of processor architectures: UltraSPARC® , SPARC64, AMD64, Pentium, and Xeon EM64T. The supported systems appear in the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List at https://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl. This document cites any implementation differences between the platform types.

In this document these x86 related terms mean the following:

  • “x86” refers to the larger family of 64-bit and 32-bit x86 compatible products.

  • “x64” points out specific 64-bit information about AMD64 or EM64T systems.

  • “32-bit x86” points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.

For supported systems, see the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List.
