I'm not familiar with your particular model, but freebsd-sparc64 does have
problem with terminal during installation. You have to either use serial
port as console, or use Ctrl-P/Ctrl-N to move cursor up/down and you have
to count how many times to press it (so you need to know content of the
installation menu). Once you done, just copy terminal definition from
Solaris, if you need to use console again.
