    Can't install solaris 11.2 on a Dell Precision T1700

    1502

      I am trying to install solaris 11.2 on a Dell Precision T1700 64 bit.
      I tried to install solaris 11 x86 too, without success..

      It takes me to the go the following WARNING:

       

      WARNING: IOMMU0l Calculated AGAW (48) is outside valid limits [30,39] specified by Vt-d spec and magaw

      Console login services(s) cannot run

          Hi --

           

          I have seen the IOMMU errors over the years and if you google on this error you can see that others have had a similar problem. Is this system listed on the Solaris 11 HCL?

           

          I'm not sure if these workaround will help:

           

          1. Disable VT-d in BIOS to install OS and enter OS after install

          2. Apply '-B iommu-enable=false' to GRUB boot entry to install OS and enter OS

           

          Thanks, Cindy
