install Solaris 10 on v20z with HW-RAID two internal disks

IHAC that has difficult time installing solaris on v20z with HW-RAID boot disks.
What I find out is that the best practice are:
  • install solaris 10 1st on one disk, say c1t0d0
  • use raid ctl -c c1t0d0 c1t1d0 to activate the HW-RAID
  • For other linux OS one should install OS 1st
  • during boot one use Ctrl-C to go into the LSI menu to activate HW-RAID
Never activate the HW-RAID without any OS installed, the sync speed without OS installed is about 10x slower than with disks that has OS installed:-(
