An update to Open Solaris 11 Express in VirtualBox failed.

An attempted update to the new Open Solaris 11 Express in VirtualBox failed

I attempted to update open Solaris running in VirtualBox VM to the new Open Solaris 11 Express.

Failed. On the VM screen I get a blinking command shell with a whole bunch of undefined symbols and missing modules for example:
opensolaris genunix: /kernel/drv/amd64/oss_sadasupport: undefined symbol

opensolaris genunix: unable to resolve dependency, module ‘misc/amsrc2’ not found

I followed the instructions at: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/821-1479/gklaa?l=en&a=view

Well, don’t have time to muck with it. The great thing about virtual machines is that you can just delete them. So, I did. Will stick with Ubuntu.
