Ah, you're more experienced that I am then. In that case you might want to try:
- boot with live CD on your sun box
- plug your usb drive there
- force-import then export your usb root pool (to eliminate any disk

- try boot from usb drive
- if the above still doesn't work, try running installgrub:

I'm still trying to install sol11 on USB, but it's dreadfully slow on
my system (not sure why)
