Looks like the boot device, which is an IDE-connected disk, is not responding. The "ok" prompt is the boot PROM monitor. The machine has tried to boot to the boot device stored in its configuration and has failed, so it drops into the PROM monitor to aid in troubleshooting.

Numerous possibilities come to mind, from a failed CMOS battery that has corrupted the configuration information (altho I dunno if a blade 1000 uses volatile memory for config stuff), to a hard drive that has died, to a dead IDE controller. This is why you get paid the big bucks - for your troubleshooting skills. :-)

Hi,

  SunBlade 1000 use the same motherboard as SunFire E240R. It uses NVRAN. It should be QLogic Fiber Channel controller with FC HD.
Anyway, do:
ok boot disk

If not work, do:
----
ok probe-scsi-all

Write down the screen and post here.

Or boot from Solaris first CD.
ok boot cdrom
and run "fsck -y" to check the disk.

Note sure what probe-scsi-all is going to do when its an IDE disk.

Who say it's IDE disk?
SunBlade 1000 (not SunBlade 100) doesn't have IDE controller.
It's Fiber Channel Disk.

Have you try to boot from cdrom and run "fsck -y"?
It could be filesystem error and need to run fsck.

Hmm, yes, I misread the device spec, nothing sez it was an IDE disk.

Memory error. The memory in SunBlade 1000 has problem.

SunBlade 1000 has 8 memory slots. Slot 1,3,5,7 is bank 1 and slot 2,4,6,8 is bank2.
If you only have 4 pieces of memory, pull out the memory and re-seat them to see you can bot.
It not, then contact Sun for warranty (1 year) support or buy the memory.

If you have 8 pieces of memory, then pull bank one (bank 2 in turns) to see which way you can reboot.
And replace the bad memory.

Before you do that, please make sure you have "ground" yourself first to avoid static charge destroying
memory.

Memory check is in POST(PowerOn System Test). If you can not pass memory check, then you can not go further.
Open the Sun box case with extreme care if you are not familar with it.

Call Sun warranty (1 year) support first.

To replace the NVRAM chip for your Sun Blade 1000 (or Sun Blade 100), download the
hardward manual for your workstation from:
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/prod/ultra.work#hic

The contact Sun for the replace chip, you need to tell then the bar code on the chip
(so the can re-programming it for you with the same hostid, you can do it yourself
if you know how).
