Description (last modified by michaln) (diff)

I tried to boot and run the solaris 8 install cdrom, in a virtual box instance, running on windows xp home.

I believe it was the 04/2001 release of solaris 8 x86.

Enabled "passthrough" for the cdrom. wouldnt see "boot.bin" without it. That's fine.... after that, the initial DCE thing came up nicely... recognized all the hardware, including the fake PCIInet device... Chose the "boot off cdrom" when it got to the part about "mark an X next to [cdrom, net, or disk]" stuff....

but it only got a little further past that. it went to the white screen, prompted me for "interactive install or custom jumpstart.... went something further..

starte spewing a bunch of 'vvvvvvv' kinda like what ticket 1589 seems to describe... but otherwise kept going... started the text "spinner"... but then crashed!

The problem with the Solaris 8 keyboard was fixed in version 3.1.0. The rest is duplicate of ticket #8247.
