Solaris 11 x86 installation troubles - 8G disk limit

view story

http://www.unix.com – Hi, I am trying to install Solaris 11 on an X86 machine. I am using the text install iso image burned to an optical disk. The system contains a single 500G SATA drive. When the system attempts to detect local disks, it reports that the disk only has a capacity of 8GB. How do I get Solaris to recognize the whole 500G? I tried to proceed with the install anyway and then I get an error reported as: InstallationLogger ERROR Unable to label 'c8d0': try using fdisk(1M) and then provide a specific slice. I suspect that this may be connected to the first issue as they both relate to disk partit (HowTos)
