IV. Practical howto
A Solaris fdisk partition can be created easily with Ranish PM. The other method is to create any type of primary partition and change its partition ID to 0x82 in the fdisk table in MBR, using a favourite disk editor .
See x86 Boot partition subsection for details on this partition. In most cases it is useless.
To avoid it run Interactive installation from "Software 1 CD" instead of Webstart installation from "Installation CD", and use fdisk to simply drop x86 Boot partition. When Solaris fdisk partition is created prior installation x86 Boot partition will not be created.
If the system is already setup simply remove that partition, use
command (see Restoring Solaris boot manager), and make
Solaris partition active.
Refer to Mounting FAT partitions.
NTFS file system is not supported by Solaris.
