Ah, I see what you mean. Unfortunately, the procedure is not the same for the
X1/Blade 100 as for the rest of the Sun boxes. I am now upgrading an Ultra 5
and, indeed, you boot the upgrader that does the job; that is not the case
with the X1s (and presumably more newer boxes).
I'd say that the only way would be to have a netbootable Solaris and use it
for this task.
