Smile [Solved] Sun Blade 2500 - boot fails

Hi folks.

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
I saw my friend stated his drive in Slave mode, I tried Master mode, no way :
ok>boot cdrom

Boot device: /pci@1e,600000/ide@d/cdrom@2,0:f File and args:

Can't open boot device
But the CD-Drive seems to be ok :
ok>devalias cdrom
cdrom        /pci@1e,600000/ide@d/cdrom@2,0:f
I only have one old CD-RW, so I can't try another today.
Tomorrow, I'll buy new ones, and try again.
