Hi, I'm trying to install Solaris 11.1 64-bit on Parallels 8 in Mountain Lion. I'm using the Live CD ISO downloaded from the Oracle website. After the Boot Menu, it gets stuck on a black console screen, and it only shows the following text and freezes. Code: SunOS Release 5.11 Version 11.1 64-bit Copyright (c) 1983, 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. I have tried quite hard to get it to work - I've restarted the VM several times, I've deleted and recreated the VM. I've tried setting the "operating system" option of the VM to all possible versions of Solaris. Yet it still freezes up. I can confirm that there's nothing wrong with the image file, since I've used the same file to install Solaris 11 in VirtualBox. It's a shame it's not working, since the Parallels Desktop page clearly states that Solaris 11 64-bit is supported. VMware and VirtualBox both run Solaris 11 flawlessly. Too bad VMware Player isn't available for Mac OS X. Any ideas on how I can get it to work? Any Parallels support person here? Thanks and regards, Samir.
