I attempted to install Feisty Fawn this evening on four separate occasions, to no avail. As per the instructions above, I created a VM based upon both a Solaris 10 and a Solaris other installation using Parallels build 3188. Initially, I elected to create a custom install using 1 GB of RAM and a 6 GB partition. After booting from the live CD, I got the "Unable to locate RSDP" message that so many others have reported. Nevertheless, the install proceeded without a hitch and I was able to specify all my settings.
Upon reboot, I once again got the "ACPI: Unable to locate..." message (although it did eventually boot to the desktop). While on the desktop, I noticed the network error indicator in the top right corner of the screen, as well as a volume icon that appeared to show muted volume. When I clicked on the volume, I received a message that no sound card was configured. Once it was enabled via Parallels, I had no problem. Moving on to the networking issue, I confirmed that my ethernet connection was enabled via shared networking through Parallels. Unfortunately, I was still unable to gain internet access. Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong, but I attempted a Typical install as well and ran into the same issues. Perhaps when re-configuring the VM after install, I did not switch the VM to Linux Kernal 2.6 at the proper time? Does this have to be done before Ubuntu requests a re-boot after the initial install? Apologies for the long-winded post. Any help greatly appreciated.
