recently openSolaris supported x86 platform had launched and i'm trying 2 install in my pc. Previously my cpu support x86,MMX,SSE,SSE2 instructions.But now it supports MMX,SSE,SSE2 all other instructions except x86.i check this using cpuz s/w. i think openSolaris os does not install in my pc due to cpu does not execute x86 instruction.then i tried to install that on another pc and it installed normally.can anyone tell me the exact problem,plz?
my system configuration--
motherboard--intel chipset MSI
processor-intel p4
hard disk-160GB
currently installed os-windows XP

The bad news is all Pentium 4 processors are x86 processors PERIOD. It can't just LOSE that ability. All Intel and AMD processors for the most part are x86 based (excluding a few high end server and ultra mobile processors).
