+1 for B.

A. a Shanghai-based company, entering the solar business was such a novice that when it visited international trade fairs, all it had was a bare table along with a board

B. a Shanghai-based company, entered the solar business, it was such a novice that when it visited international trade fairs, all it had was a bare table and a board --> Correct, rectifies modifier error, maintains the construct, and conveys intended meaning

C. entered the solar business, the Shanghai-based company was such a novice that when it visited international trade fairs, all it had was a bare table and a board

D. visited international trade fairs, the Shanghai-based company entered the solar business, all it had was a bare table and a board

' All it had was a bare table and a board' is grammatically incorrect -- all it had 'were a table and a board' is the correct form. For example, we say that there are a brother and a sister in that apartment and not there is a brother and sister in that apartment.
On that count B through E are out. We are left with just A, which uses the additive 'along ' to suit the singular 'was.' However, even in A, the convoluted passage makes it more of a showpiece than actual practice stuff.
