The boot.1m program is loaded from disk by the bootblock program which resides in the boot area of a disk partition.
bootblk is the name of the bootblock code. raw-disk-device is the name of the disk device onto which the bootblock code is to be installed; it must be a character device which is readable and writable. Naming conventions for a SCSI or IPI drive are c?t?d?s? and c?d?s? for an IDE drive. pboot is the name of the partition boot file.
The ufs boot objects are platform-dependent, and reside in the /usr/platform/platform-name/lib/fs/ufs directory. The platform name can be found using the -i option of uname.1
To install a ufs bootblock on slice 0 of target 0 on controller 1, of the platform where the command is being run, use:
example# installboot /usr/platform/`uname -i`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblk \ /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0
To install the ufs bootblock and partition boot program on slice 2 of target 0 on controller 1, of the platform where the command is being run, use:
example# installboot /usr/platform/`uname -i`/lib/fs/ufs/pboot \ /usr/platform/`uname -i`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblk /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s2
