Solaris 11 is already available as a bootable live USB image.

Have a look to "USB Install Images for x86" in its download page

Please accept my reply if it answers your original question. Even slightly related, the one you just asked is different so should be asked as a new question. Thanks. – jlliagre Sep 10 '12 at 8:45

This link is for Solaris 10. Solaris 11 way is simpler as the image is already distributed. – jlliagre Sep 8 '12 at 8:05
