In the "grub" menu, select the Solaris 11 entry and select "e" for edit. Add a " -r" to the kernel line and boot. That should instruct the kernel to rebuild the devices.
I added -r to the kernel line and reboot, but the problem remains.
I shortly see the Solaris start screen but then it immediately reboots.
In this case (on plain hardware) it doesnt see the VMware virtual hardware anymore
but a plain HP DC7900, I will check if Solaris can run on a DC7900.
Well, if you have run Solaris inside a VMWare guest, even though you used a raw disk to install the system, I bet that after you removed the VMWare installation, you'd need to run installgrub from the S11 installer CD or USB key.
So, I think what is happening here is that grub runs and then tries to boot the kernel, however with some false offset and thus reboots.
My take on this would be:
- boot of the text installer CD or USB key
- chose "Enter Shell"
- check your rpool, maybe run zfs import…
installgrub /boot/grub/stage1 /boot/grub/stage2 /dev/rdsk/<whereever your rpool slice is located>
