Slice overlap


After Solaris 10 installation in x86 machine it shows the error message Swap slice overlapped. Please advice me how to change the cylinder offset?

Either format (interactive) or prtvtoc/fmthard (batch mode).

The format utility will let you modify the partition, but be advised!

word of warning: The non-destructive commands should be just that, but it is up to you to decide whether to run them on your system or not. The destructive commands will destroy data on a disk; run these commands only if you are sure you know what you are doing.

The "format" Utility in the Solaris Operating System
http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/content/...t_utility.html

I've never used format to modify a slice so don't really know if it will destroy data if your carefull not to overlap slices other than slice 2, which is the whole Solaris partition/disk.

I've always use the installer to set the Gb/Mb size for each slice and let the installer automatically set the slice boundry, example screenshot:

The system is already in a very distressful state if slices are overlapping.

Please run the non destructive "prtvtoc /dev/dsk/c0d0s2" command and post the output here.

I reinstalled the OS again. While booting its shows the warning message "Notice: Failed to initialize inband hotplug controller" and its booting normally. Once booting over its i am getting shrinked display in single line. While video selection window in installation phase i tested the video selection is good. Please advice me on this issue.

Why did you reinstall while there was possibly a simple correction that could be attempted ?

Did you change something between both installations, like video adapter or screen attached ?

There was no changes i made in video settings. But i tried "kdmconfig or /usr/X11/bin/xorgconfig " in Failsafe mode.
