offline zone install is not available today.  there is a bug for this
and we will have it someday:

1947 Offline zone creation is impossible

since you don't have entire installed it's not possible to install valid
zones (even if you have an accessible repo).  there is a bug on this:

16568 zoneadm install can create out of sync zones if entire has been removed
https://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=1947

i'd recommend that you install zones before running onu.

i'd also strongly recommend running recent builds.  if your running
older builds then lots of stuff will be broken.
