Title says it all. I'm a Windows guy, and a bit out of my element here, but a client has an old Solaris machine hosting a Database.
The machine turned off for a yet as unknown reason (probably power failure) and upon turning the machine back on, I received a blue screen, and a message that says "Requested Cylinder is beyond range of BIOS geometry."
I don't know what this means, but a little preliminary research suggests it could be a problem with the partition table?
Also, I've heard that it's possible to boot a Solaris installation that rests on a hard drive by using a bootable CD/DVD/Floppy.
How can I determine the best fix for the error message AND/OR how can I boot the machine back up again and get them functional while we determine a replacement plan.
Thanks in advance.
