    Failure trying to install Solaris 11.1 x86

    eldiener
      My attempt to install Solaris 11.1 x86 goes along pretty smoothly until I try to install. Then i get:

      2013-04-03 19:06:55,166 InstallationLogger ERROR Error occurred during execution of 'TargetInitialization' checkpoint.
      Traceback (most recent call last):

      Is there a workaround for this installation error ?
