32bit / 64bit issue with x86 solaris

i have solaris 10 x86 64bit installed on my pc (dell 3100). i then decided to move my hard drive to another pc (dell 4600). I noticed that each time i boot up, the OS show as 32 bit (instead of 64bit) and i can't even get past this stage to the login page.
when i moved it back to dell 3100 it work just fine.
pls can anyone help.

during the OS installation, you have installed it as 64bit. Thus it will not work on a 32bit processor

try a "reconfigure" boot on the new mashine. just type "reboot -- -r" after boot as user root.

can you boot to "failsafe" mode? if yes, try the reconfigure from there...

I did it but nothing happen. i still had ethe same prob. there was an issue with the network adapter (iprb0) and the virtual machine which was already installed.

I thought if i do "sys-unconfig" it will work. but i am scared to loose data. what do you reckon.
