DL360, SmartArray 6i and Solaris 8 Install

I am having problems getting Solaris 8 to install. I can boot into the Configuration Assistant where I load the driver disk as well as the softpaq 14289. It proceeds and then tells me it uses realmode drivers to address disks and it couldn't find one but it did find a controller and disk but no driver for it. It then proceeds to where it starts to boot the interactive install. I get the information about SunOS 5.8 and then it just stops and won't proceed any further. What do I need to get this to install properly?

Hi Bruce Embrey,

If it is help for you.

You try os-installation along with Configuration Assistant Diskette.

Problem Faced:
Error: Missing Primary Disk. The Solaris could not detect a Primary disk , but none of them map to the primary disk: /pci@0,0/pci8086,3595@2/pci8086,32a@0,2/pciell,4091@3/cmdk@0,0:
Solution provided:

When we Boot Solaris with Solaris 8 Software CD 1of 2(10/01) to installed OS above said problem found.
Finally we are Boot Solaris with Configuration Assistant Diskette and Choose the F4 option (F4_Add Driver ) to add the Smart Array 6I Controller (CPQary38130 Driver Update diskette) Press F2_Continue. Reinsert the Configuration Assistant diskette and press F4_Done. Then it will ask CD 1 of 2 &CD 2 of 2
And the installation process has been done successfully.
Configuration Assistant floppy image has been attached
