Exclamation Solaris 10 Installtion


I have a AMD PC installed with Windows 7 OS and i have around 40 GB free space. I want to install Solaris 20 and keep both windows and solaris but while installing solaris it is taking complete harddisk for partioning not the remaining 40 gb space. Please suggest how to perform this and make a dual boot with both the OS.

Is it possible to install Solaries 10 in free space, while windows 7 is already installed or i have to install Solaris first then windows. I have the below mentioned partion:
1. C Drive- Windows 7 (30 GB)
2. D Drive - Apps(50 GB)
3. E Drive- 100 GB
4. F Drive- 100 GB
5. G Drive- 100 GB
6. H Drive -40
Free Space - 50 GB

Let me know without touching any ntfs partion can i install solaris in free space, because while installing it it taking complete harddisk i.e 478 GB for partition not that free 50 Gb for partion.


Thanks
Chetan
