Solaris10 branded zone creation error on Solaris 11.1

We are having the problem in creating the Solaris10 branded zone on the solaris 11.1 version. We are trying to install this branded zone using the solaris10 VM template. Please can some one through some pointers ?

The installation steps stops at "Waiting for boot to complete" but never successfully boots even waiting for long times. We can see that Zone status in configured only.

root@localhost:~# /home/solaris-10u10-sparc.bin -p /solaris10 -i net0 -a -z zone10
