Wow. All I can say is thank you so much to everyone
who helped me get
this far - in particular Blue, Artyom and Tarl. Does anyone know if we
are the first non-Sun firmware to be able to boot a Solaris kernel?
Blue - I think you owe me that 1.1 release soon!
Happy Easter everyone!
Thanks, again, Mark - this is fantastic!
After booting the install successfully from the Solaris ISO/CDROM and
getting through the initial configuration (on both Solaris 8 and 9), the
install fails trying to label the hard drive. First, I see the
following during the installer boot:
WARNING: /iommu@0,10000000/sbus@0,10001000/espdma@5,8400000/esp@5,8800000/sd@0,0 (sd0):
corrupt label - wrong magic number
Then, after doing the system identification, I get the following:
One or more disks are found, but one of the
following problems exists:
At which point I get dropped to a shell. If I try to use the format
command from the shell, format cannot auto-configure the disk. Even if
I try manually setting C/H/S parameters (either at qemu run time or in
the format command), it does not seem to want to use the disk. This
seems to happen whether I'm using an LVM volume or a file-based disk.
Also, seems as though all changes are lost on the disk when I exit
format and then immediately go back in.
Ideas? Any further help/input/debugging I could provide?
