Dual OS Setup

December 27, 2009 at 20:44:43
Specs: SOLARIS 10 & VISTA, AMD 64
I WANTED TO INSTALL SOLARIS 10 on my
HP Pavilion DV6915NR laptop but I wanted to
do it in Dual mode, I mean I don't wanna loose
Vista and wanted to use Solaris 10 also.

I have original Solaris 10 Installation Media kit
and If you know how to do it, Please let me
know.

I strongly suggest you consider a virtual machine. A VM is a software computer. It is like word or paint or any other application but is a computer.

See Virtualbox, VMplayer 3 or Virtualpc if you have about 2 gig ram.


Otherwise see any of the web pages on how to install Solaris or Opensolaris in dual boot.

Hint, start with a backup of your vista to remote media.

Any of the newer Opensolaris cd's can be run as Live CD's and just boot to the cd to play with the OS.
