Hi.
I'm so excited about OpenSolaris so I decided to give it a shot.
Recipe:
DELL Inspirson 1520
Core2Duo 2GHz
2 GB RAM
Ubuntu 7.10
VirtualBox

OpenSolaris booting is froze after a couple of minutes.
A friend of mine has no proplem at all (Ubuntu 8.4, Toshiba Tecra)
Any ideas?

How are you trying to run it? Booting from the LiveCD or running it inside VirtualBox?
Likely places to get help are the OpenSolaris documentation and forums and the VirtualBox site.
