I've been trying to install OpenIndiana on an HP DL320 G6 for a while now. I've got a 16GB HP SDHC card in the onboard slot and a SATA CD-Rom with
oi-dev-151a-text-x86.iso burnt to a disc.
Installation seems to progress fine until I get to the actual installation portion. The SD card is picked up as a USB Disk. All the other configuration options are very 'normal' (there really aren't many options to begin with). Automatic NIC configuration.
The installer starts "Installing OpenIndiana", does a few steps, then gets to "Preparing disk for OpenIndiana installation" at 2%; and just sits there. I've let it sit for half an hour now ans still no progress.
How can I get past this issue?
PS> I'm not terribly familiar with OpenSolaris, but am with FreeBSD and *nix CLIs in general.
I've download and burnt the graphical installer (wow, it does not work with iLO). After finding a keyboard, mouse, etc I got the installer going. Stops in the same place, but now with the error:
Cannot mount volume: Unable to mount the volume 'rpool1'. and and OK button. It appears the installer has no exception handling, as clicking OK results the installer hanging (the ads still rotate and the computer is otherwise responsive, but the installer does not progress).
