I've got a problem booting Solaris Express x86 (nv44) from a 2 Gig USB
My first problem was the installation.
When the USB key was present at the the time the install DVD started,
the whole process hung, until the USB key was removed.
This did not happen if using a smaller 512 Meg USB Key.
I can also avoid this problem with the 2 Gig key by disabling USB
Legacy support in the bios before starting the DVD booting.
OK, so now the Solaris Express install (core support) goes well.
However when trying to boot from this 2 Gig USB key, if USB legacy
support is enabled, then the process hangs just after the path to the
USB device is found just prior to mounting root. I did try setting
dobiosdev to 0 but this didn't fix the problem.
I'm sure that disabling USB legacy support would fix this problem,
however when I do this, the bios then doesn't see the USB key
as a device available for booting.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can either
1) get the bios to see the 2 Gig key when USB legacy support
is disabled or
2) get the boot process to proceed when USC legacy support is enabled.
