    After Solaris 11.1 upgrade "GPU hung" OS starts, but no graphics, GPU hung

    user12163570
      I have an Intel DH77EB motherboard. Solaris 11 installed fine (after disabling Intel VT-d). Upgrade to 11.1 processes went fine. OS boots up. Not services in maintenance mode. But, I can't access the console because the GPU has hung. Get the following in /var/adm/messages:

      In the HCL, it appears that the graphics device is supported.

          I had trouble with Gnome desktop after upgrading from 11.0 to 11.1
          Solution was to remove pkg SUNWvboxguest.
          After suggessful remove I could re-run pkg upgrade.

          Check/paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log that might give some hints...

          I got eg. this error; but NOW its working...:)
