No the partition type is correct (as you see the partition is Linux swap
The problem here I think it's the fact that probably linux isn't
handling the hard disk correctly and the produced image is missing the
x86 boot sector from the disk. (at least I suppose it's not the sparc
version :P )
Solaris 9 is pretty old and I don't know if it will run on KVM.
I see failed reports to install it on kvm on the internet, also a 4GB
drive is very little, but I see you are migrating very old systems.
If I had to do such a migration I'd go the system upgrade way, but that
depends on what do that OS have installed.
my 2 cents.
