Use: http://dlc-origin.openindiana.org/isos/hipster/OI-hipster-text-20140214.iso

Use: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtreme_server.php
Solaris bge driver v16.2.2

At the GRUB menu, press 'e' to edit, highlight kernel$, press 'e' to edit, append -B disable-bge=true after the end. This disables the driver temporarily, so you can replace it with the new driver.

I have a newer bge driver I maintain for illumos-based distros, but start there.
