I believe you installed HVM DomU.  Actually, virt-install works with loop mounted ISOs
as Apache page or NFS share to create PV DomU for Linux Distros.
This way never worked for Nevada&OSOL , due to Sun architecture doesn't require 
loop mounting ISO.  It allows PV install just via reference ISO image in python profile.
( xml profile). I've done HVM test for OI 147. Once again PV drivers fail  to load.

I installed OI 147 from the ISO as a domU under Debian Lenny 5.0, with
the help of libvirt, without running into crashes. I'll try to recover
the steps I happened to follow and all the versions, and write them
down, as soon as possible (ideally, during the weekend).

Thanks for your posts: they were very useful for me during the last
year and a half to succeed in running OSol as a domU!
