Mount the BE with beadm after importing rpool:

# beadm list
# beadm mount OS_148 /a
# /a/usr/sbin/installgrub /a/boot/stage1 /a/boot/stage2 dev/rdsk/c0d0s0

The device should be replaced with the your device. I believe you can
use format to identify your disk. Now you can do the update-archive thing.
