    Installing OpenSolaris on HP SmartArray

    Solaris and OpenSolaris does not include SmartArray drivers, these need to be download from HP Website

    After that, extract the .pkg directory onto a USB stick

    Then start the LiveCD, open terminal and type :

     pfexec touch /ADD_DRV_IGNORE_ROOT_BASEDIR

    after that install the driver :

     pfexec pkgadd -d path/to/pkgdir

    Now you can start installation, it should see the array.
