[OpenIndiana-discuss] OI boot problem

OK - thanks; I enter the corrected sequence of commands, and restart. I get the (dead) black screen with the GRUB_, as before.

I've previously printed out my old menu.lst and have tried editing the grub listing of the live usb image by adding in the findroot, bootfs etc commands from the old menu.lst. When I boot that I get
findroot (pool_rpool,X,Y)
file not found

where I think X=1, Y=a are correct (I currently only have one disk), but anyway changing X,Y has no effect. I thought findroot was associated with /a/rpool/boot/grub/bootsign which I see when I import my rpool. Should it be somewhere else as well ?

OK the last command is not correct. My apologies. It should be

#  /a/usr/sbin/installgrub /a/boot/grub/stage1 /a/boot/grub/tage2 /dev/rdsk/c5d0s0
