Booting Solaris 10 with GAG

  • hitesh

    I have two SATA RAID arrays configured on machine.

    On the first raid array I have installed Windows XP and Windows 2003 and on the other one I have installed Sun Solaris 10.

    While configuring the Sun Solaris OS on the 2nd disk (Press 2), I saw the menu to be something like

      A Boot from Floppy Disk
      B BCH or some similar cryptic string..

    Is that normal. I selected B.

    I installed GAG on a floppy to boot between the multiple OS's. (I didn't wanted to change my MBR on Hard Drive, I decided to use the Floppy based boot and it works great.)

    However, for some reason, when I select Sun Solaris 10 to be booted, it pick up the Sun Boot Manager but is trying to load it
    from /disk/diskette0 or something like that. Sun Solaris Boot Configuration Assistant then corrects it everytime to go to the right (ide0 etc..) address.

    Anyway where I can resolve this so that I don't have to use the Config Assistant steps.

    Any tips?
