OpenSolaris installation issue
Hello! I'm having a bit of difficulty installing OpenSolaris 2008.05 on my computer.
The problem is this: I start the installation process after the liveCD has booted, and when it gets to around 99-100%, my system instantaneously reboots! I've tried burning several separate discs of OS 2008.05, each at a slow speed and verified the burn. All of them show this problem. I tested this on my other, older computer and it installed fine.
I'm inclined to think it's my hardware. Here's my specs:
-Intel Core 2 Q6600 2.40 GHz Quad Core Processor
-Intel BLKDG31PR Motherboard
-4096 MB (4GB) DDR II 800MHz PC6400 Memory
-250GB SATA 7,200 RPM 8MB Cache Hard Drive
-1TB SATA 7,200 RPM 32MB Cache Hard Drive
-Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 Onboard Video Graphics (disabled in BIOS)
-nVidia GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB PCI-E 16x video card
-20X DVD±RW Burner Dual Layer Drive (IDE)
-52x CD burner (IDE)
-Single-Layer Blu-ray burner, Dual-Layer reader (SATA)
-Dual-Layer Blu-ray burner/HD DVD-ROM (SATA)
-6 Channel High Definition onboard sound (disabled in BIOS)
-Creative SoundBlaster Audigy SE 24-bit PCI sound card
- 10/100/1000 Gigabit Network Interface
The SATA and IDE controllers are part of my motherboard, if that matters.
I've searched a lot for answers to this problem, but I haven't found any answers to why the OpenSolaris installation-reboot problem occurs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
