Solaris NV55 on VBox?

Post by phuongthanh »

I am running into an issue with installing Solaris in VBox. After I choose which part to boot from the disc, it boots, then after that it just hangs.
I tried several different boot options, etc, but still can't get it, anyone else have any luck?
I used the disc to load Solaris on other computers and VM's, so the disc is good.

Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip it, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.
