Creating OpenSolaris installation USB sticks on Windows
By glagasse on Apr 10, 2009
It was great to read my mail this morning and see this:
A nice GUI tool that will allow Windows users to put a copy of OpenSolaris media on a usb stick which they can use to boot machines without (and with if you'd rather save a CD) a cd/dvd-rom instead of needing to have Solaris/OpenSolaris already installed somewhere and using the usbcopy script.
Now, if we could get something similar written for Linux, Mac OS X and OpenSolaris the path to world domination would be even closer :-)
I haven't tried this yet, so I can't speak to how well it does or does not work. A USB image that can be written to a USB stick can be found at:
This is the latest snapshot of what will be the 2009.06 OpenSolaris release (which is shaping up quite nicely).
