How to cross check created boot block in second disk

Hi All,

I have copied a existing root file system from c0t0d0 to c0t1d0 in SUN Fire 6800 by using the below command,

ufsdump 0ucf - / | (cd /new.root ; ufsrestore -rf - )

and later on I created a boot block on c0t1d0s0 by using the below command

installboot /usr/platform/`uname -i`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblk /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0

and I did all this procedure only to have a backup bootable disk in our SUN Fire 6800 but my question is how we can cross check that boot block is created in c0t1d0s0 without manually booting from c0t1d0s0.

Kindly advice me on the same.

Many Thanks.

I'd think you could read it from the beginning of the raw device, or virtualize the machine and boot it inside a virtual partition.
