I haven't touch SunOS installation for over two years
and forgot about default boot disk ID on SunOS.
This is EEPROM boot device setting issue.
boot device is set default to "disk net"
The disk is ID 0, so "boot disk0" works.
I changed ID to 3 later.
(Alternative, change boot-device=disk0 net)
Thanks for quick replay.
