Solaris on Sony Vaio Laptop

Last week I was trying to install Solaris 11 on Sony Vaio laptop PCG-FX340K . Started installation of Solaris Nevada but interactive installation fails because this laptop has i815 chipset. So follow below steps for installation

> Interactive installation would fail so use Solaris Console mode installation.

> After intial installation make sure you boot up Solaris with “-s” for single user mode.

> Now run the command for adding vga driver

~# update_drv -a -i ‘”pci8086,1132”‘ agptarget Which will add /etc/driver_aliases for i815 chipset

> Now download X.org file and copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

> For sound driver you need to download package from audio-1.8-i86pc.pkg.bz2    bunzip it and then do “pkgadd -d audio-1.8-i86pc.pkg” for installation.
