    on a PC you need to run "fdisk" to craete a PC - hardware disk
    partition.
    Then run "format" to create the VTOC.

    The install program is supposed to do this. So for some reason it
    failed.

    Probable reason is that you have a new PC and Solaris 8 is 7 years
    old.
    I reccomend that you try solaris 10 instead.

    You will have to describe in detail what you are trying to do and
    how/when it fails
    all you said so far is that you cant install solaris on a new
    diskdrive.

    How many disks do you have in the machine ?
    How are the drives attached ?
    How are the drives partitioned ?
    Whic drive is designated as the boot drive in the bios.
    What type of disc is it ? Pata/Sata ?
    how many Pata/SATA channells does th motherboard have ?
    what motherboard is it
    how much RAM do you have ?

    A.S.O A.S:O

    First is your system listed in the hardware compatible list ?

    if not you need to describe it completely !
    particularly the disk subsystem as that where your problem sems to be
    !
