How do I get Solaris 8 off the harddrive?? It is a dual boot win98se/solaris 8
Harddrive. I get an error "Partitions do not end on cylinder boundary.
I'm pretty sure that solaris 8 bootloader is the cause, but I feel it'll cause
a win98se boot problem like I had before ... "No operating system found" the
last time I did fdisk /mbr to get rid of it. Any ideas??
you can try editing the partition table with fdisk, but this is a seperate
issue. Please send the output of the following - you can type it in on the
console at Alt+F2 in the installer:
for I in /proc/ide/hd*; do echo $I; cat $I/model; done
