[rescue] Booting a T2000

Hi Joshua,

I think that this is the cause of your trouble:

{0} ok boot disk
Boot device: /pci at 780/pci at 0/pci at 9/scsi at 0/disk at 0  File and args:

Can't open boot device

... and ...

Target 2
Unit 0   Disk     ATA     WDC WD800BEVS-081G08    156301488 Blocks, 80
   SATA device  PhyNum 2

It looks to me like the "disk" alias is pointing to disk ID 0, but your disk is actually ID 2.  (What does "devalias" show?)

Try "boot disk2".

If that works, then you can "init 0" from Solaris to return to the PROM and "setenv boot-device disk2", to get OBP to remember it.

Hope this helps,
