How to download Solaris 10 8/07

I suppose this could be tagged “obvious” but I thought I’d warm up a bit with a simple post about where to find Solaris 10 for download. Believe it or not, you can go find the official site at www.solaris.com and there are prominent “Get It Now!” and “downloads” links on the front page that will take you to the options for downloading Solaris or purchasing a media kit.

Registration is required to download solaris, but then you are presented with a simple page to download the DVD of Solaris x86. If you have a Windows box, there is an option to download a compressed DVD image in a self-extracting executable. This is by far the simplest method, although you do have to be patient in waiting for the download and the extraction. There is also a multi-segment download that you can use on just about any platform to build the ISO file and then burn it to a DVD.

Once on DVD, you can boot from the disc and proceed with installing Solaris 10 on your box.
