No,
you can run only Solaris for x86 on your PC.

Hi radoulov,

Which the best choices toinstall solaris/intel on my win7? Virtualbox? Qemu? vmware? Are all the same?

regards
Israel.

It depends on what you need to do with it. If you want to work with multiple virtual hosts/clusters etc, I would recommend VMware.

If it's only for a single guest, VirtualBox should be sufficient and less resource intensive.

I have only limited experience with Qemu.

NIce radoulov,

Then I'll use virtualbox.

Is solaris 10 call oracle solaris 10? I'm not interest in opensolaris.
Do you think Oracle Solaris 10 10/09 Appliance Image for Oracle VM VirtualBox Download is enough for my virtualbox? Or I need to download the iso itself and install from it.

really appreciateyour help

regards
Israel.

If you want to study/test Oracle on Solaris, the appliance image should be sufficient.
If you want to study/test Solaris, try to install it from scratch.

Actually, I'm not sure if:

Quote:
for Oracle VM VirtualBox
is because Oracle owns Sun and VirtualBox now, or because of some pre-configured Oracle product on that appliance.

What do you mean "from scratch? from iso file? is solaris 10/intrel free?

thanks
Israel.
