Are you booting over the network or from CD/DVD?  What kind of hardware?

Make sure the VM is booting the DVD, it sounds like its possible that the VM has a broken installation on it or something like that.

The install DVD should provide a menu with the default option being the Solaris Interactive install.  

Make sure you have the right DVD, x86.

In grub, you can attempt to run the "boot" command to see if it will continue.  Or dig around for the kernel and miniroot and load them manually.
