That log shows that it is booting Solaris 10 off the existing hard disk, not the Solaris 11 boot media. (The Starting Desktop Login on display :0... message comes from the old CDE login manager, which isn't included in Solaris 11.)

It always annoys how CentOS/RHEL, by default, on a large hard disk, create a fairly small / partition and a really huge /home partition. This is why, when install CentOS, I always manually partition, and never use LVM (which, I have heard, also reduces performance).
