Boot failure

I have installed Solaris 10 OS in Sun Virtual Box that uses x86 32 bit system. After an abnormal shutdown i'm getting the following message on the console when i try to boot.

Code:
SunOS Release 5.10 Version Generic_127128_11 32-bit
Copyright 1983-200 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights reserrved.
Use is subject to license terms.

WARNING: The following files in / differ from the boot archive:
    changed /kernel/drv/md.conf

The recommended action is to reboot and select the "Solaris failsafe" option from the boot menu. Then follow the prompts to update the boot archive. To continue booting at your own risk, you may clear the service by running" "svcadm clear system/boot-archive"

When i reboot and select the "solaris failsafe" option as mentioned on the console, i'm getting the following message.

Code:

Looks like there is something wrong with your /boot/x86.miniroot-safe image. I would boot normally and then update the boot archive using
Code:
# bootadm update-archive

and then check the failsafe mode works.

I executed the command # bootadm update-archive in normal mode and booted the OS in failsafe mode. But still i'm getting the same message.

Code:
panic[cpu0]/thread=fec1ec20: boot_mapin(): No pp for pfnum = 0

# 4  
Please can you say after process the below commands and result?

Code:
svcadm clear system/boot-archive
bootadm update-archive
shutdown -i 6
