If you want a different size, just specify the solaris size you want the virtual disk to be in the command line.
Now run qemu as follows to solaris create a 10Gb virtual disk: qemu-img create -f vmdk solaris10.vmdk 10G This will create a disk image - a file, initially solaris sized about.4Gb (it may grow up to 10Gb if you fill it up).
After installing the Solaris 10 Operating System on a virtual machine, the pcn vmware driver appears.Install VMware Tools and reboot the virtual machine to ensure that the default pcn solaris driver switches to vmxnet.If VMware Tools has not been installed on the guest, the adapter driver identifies itself as pcn.Solaris 10, 64-bit guests support only the e1000 network adapter driver.At the end of the CD1 installation, remove the CD as it reboots, boot vmware as normal into Solaris, and insert.Now would be a good time to patch your Solaris instance.You might notice vmware the new "Dell Computer USB device" item; I do not know how that appeared, I have not investigated USB, but it just appeared part way through the install.It would probably be quicker to do the install in text-only mode.After a doing a little exploration around the interwebs, I found a very simple solution to that problem.After doing the above, the installation and OS ran without issue.You know the drill.Now what do you do with it? Here, I have extracted it to my D: drive.
The problem was that even though I was specifying a 32-bit VM in VMWare, the Solaris installation was still identifying the Penryn chip as supporting 64-bit, so Solaris would install the 64-bit version.
