Boot error: Error 28 : Selected item cannot fit into memory


HI jlliagre & jschiwal ,
Thanks for your response, I turned on my PC to test those options. But system is booting only in "Failsafe" mode. While selecting the default option I am getting the error that

File type is ufs , partition type 0xbf

Error 28 : Selected item cannot fit into memory.

Press Any key to continue...


What may be the Problem??

( Or this should be post as New thread???)

Moving to a new thread, as this is not related to tar options.
--

This is an error reported by grub before the O/S is loaded.

It normally means the system cannot fit in the RAM but it could be something else.

What precise Solaris version are you running ?

How much RAM is available (run the "displaymem" command under grub command line).

I would have tried with 512M, 256 is possibly too low for recent kernels.

So you reinstalled and it works now ?
