IA: Screens Displayed During the Device Identification Phase
Several screens are displayed as the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant attempts to identify devices on the system.
IA: Configuration Assistant Screen
This screen appears each time you boot the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant. The Solaris Device Configuration Assistant runs every time the system is booted, although the autoboot process bypasses the menus.
Solaris Device Configuration Assistant The Solaris(TM) (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Assistant scans to identify system hardware, lists identified devices, and can boot the Solaris software from a specified device. This program must be used to install the Solaris operating environment, add a driver, or change the hardware on the system. > To perform a full scan to identify all system hardware, choose Continue. > To diagnose possible full scan failures, choose Specific Scan. > To add new or updated device drivers, choose Add Driver. About navigation... - The mouse cannot be used. - If the keyboard does not have function keys or they do not respond, press ESC. The legend at the bottom of the screen will change to show the ESC keys to use for navigation. - The F2 key performs the default action. F2_Continue F3_Specific Scan F4_Add Driver F6_Help
IA: Bus Enumeration Screen
The Bus Enumeration screen appears briefly while the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant gathers hardware configuration data for devices that can be detected automatically.

IA: Scanning Devices Screen
The Scanning Devices screen appears while the Solaris Device Configuration Assistant manually scans for devices that can only be detected with special drivers.
Scanning Devices The system is being scanned to identify system hardware. If the scanning stalls, press the system's reset button. When the system reboots, choose Specific Scan or Help. Scanning: Floppy disk controller ####################### | | | | | | 0 20 40 60 80 100 Please wait ...
IA: Identified Devices Screen
The Identified Devices screen displays which devices have been identified on the system. From here, you can continue to the Boot Solaris menu or perform optional device tasks, such as setting a keyboard configuration, viewing and editing devices, setting up a serial console, and saving and deleting configurations.
Identified Devices The following devices have been identified on this system. To identify devices not on this list or to modify device characteristics, such as keyboard configuration, choose Device Tasks. Platform types may be included in this list.

IA: Menus Displayed During the Boot Phase
During this phase, you can determine the way in which the system is booted.
IA: Boot Solaris Menu
The Boot Solaris menu allows you to select the device from which to boot the Solaris release. You can also perform optional tasks, such as viewing and editing autoboot and property settings. Once you select a boot device and you choose Continue, the Solaris kernel begins to boot.
Boot Solaris Select one of the identified devices to boot the Solaris kernel and choose Continue. To perform optional features, such as modifying the autoboot and property settings, choose Boot Tasks. An asterisk (*) indicates the current default boot device. > To make a selection use the arrow keys, and press Enter to mark it [X].

IA: Current Boot Parameters Menu
This menu appears each time you boot the Solaris release from the local disk. Let the five-second timeout elapse if you want to boot the default Solaris kernel. If you want to boot with different options, select an appropriate option before the time-out period elapses.
