Thanks - I get this, which I hope reproduces your suggested commands

jack at opensolaris:~$ pfexec zpool import -f -R /a rpool
jack at opensolaris:~$ beadm list

/a/usr/sbin/installgrub: No such file or directory
jack at opensolaris:~$ 

What does that imply ?

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.
