Start by making the Solaris parition the active one. That might be enough to recover the grub menu.
You can use a live CD or the Solaris boot media to achieve that.
Run the "fdisk /dev/rdsk/c0d0p0" command from a shell then select choice "2" to set the active partition.

Your boot disk might be different than c0d0p0.
