          The driver is still there, but it's no longer registered.  You should boot from an alternate boot environment, use beadm mount to mount the broken BE, and then use add_drv -b to re-add the driver(s) that were unregistered.  The boot into the fixed BE will probably require the -r option to initiate a device reconfiguration.

            Than-you for your response..


            booted it from alternate BE,

            used beadm to mount the broke BE to the created  /a directory

            used add_drv -b to re-add the drive.. drive ata was successfuly re-installed

            boot it to the fixed BE .. is booting over and over and over...

            I am probably doing something wrong .. any ideas?

            I appreciate your help

              Can you provide the boot error message?


              Dave mentioned that you would probably need to do a boot -r to do a reconfiguration boot. Did you try that?


              Thanks, Cindy
