Open Solaris in a Box
By user12601629 on Feb 18, 2008
So, I just did my first Open Solaris install! I just put the new Developer Preview 2 of OpenSolaris into a VirtualBox VM. Seems to be working great (running on top of Microsoft Vista!). Here's a picture of the VirtualBox UI with my VM and Disk Image displayed.
Here's a picture of the VM running inside VirtualBox. You can click to see it fun
The one tip I can give you if you try this yourself is that you'll need to bump up the size of the default video RAM size on the VM from the default 8 MB. Otherwise you won't be able to boot. However, this was really easy in the VirtualBox control panel.
