Solaris Nevada on Toshiba Tecra M3 -- CMOS Setup

The second time you have to answer the same question is the right time to consider
writing the answer down somewhere

When I was trying to install Solaris Nevada (http://www.opensolaris.org/)
into my Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop for the first time (about 10 months ago), I experienced strange error messages and was not able to proceed. Until I changed my CMOS settings.

Then one of my colleagues experienced the same issue and recently one another asked me for a hint. So I decided to publish the following two screenshots. Hope it might help you as well.

    Hi Jakub, it helped. The problematic setting is on Page2: Device Config. I had it set to 'Assign by OS' or something like that. After changing it to 'All Devices', I was able to proceed. Thanks!
