[Solved] Sun Blade 2500 - boot fails
I received my eBayed Sun Blade 2500, 4 Gb RAM, 1xUSIIIi@1,28GHz, diskless.
Diskless, but I wanted to try to boot, just to see.
A friend let me use his IDE CD-RW drive.
I burned a OpenBSD SPARC64 install CD with my mac, no error detected during the burn.
The OBP banner displays some tips : ethernet address, 4 Gb RAM ok, Open Boot 4.17.1
I must wait a few seconds, during the net boot, which logically fails, no tftp server installed.
I tried a cdrom boot, but it also failed :
ok>boot cdrom Boot device: /pci@1e,600000/ide@d/cdrom@2,0:f File and args: Bad magic number in disk label. Can't open disk label package Can't open boot device
ok>boot cdrom Boot device: /pci@1e,600000/ide@d/cdrom@2,0:f File and args: Can't open boot device
ok>devalias cdrom cdrom /pci@1e,600000/ide@d/cdrom@2,0:f
Tomorrow, I'll buy new ones, and try again.
