Do you have internal disks it boots off?

What boot command are you using?

Have you set device aliases at the OBP?  What does 'devaliases' display?

To boot from a disk with root installed on it, you will have to put the bootblock(s) onto it:
# installboot /usr/platform/`uname -m`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblk /dev/rdsk/<disk-device>s0
