Please post the output of:
grep -A2 "Partition check:" /var/log/dmesg
Since I no longer have Solaris installed I'm kind of shooting blind but
mount -t ufs -o ufstype=sunx86 /dev/hdb7 /mnt
try the same command on hdb8-14.
If none of those work try again with ufstype=sun.
If that doesn't work try the solaris mailing lists, perhaps there's
an app similar to fsck for solaris on your install CD.
