Welcome to The HTG Forums.
My opinion only.
I would suggest running Solaris on its own machine if you want to develop.
Dual booting with all of its own issues will only distract from what you are trying to accomplish.
Here is an old article but not sure if this is really what you want to do.
There is discussion concerning running Solaris in Virtual Box but again, believe you will get absorbed in booting schemes and not pure development.
I'm sure other Members of HTG who run Solaris have differing opinions.
Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♥ :)
