Your Blade 1500 is UltraSparc III based, but unfortunately all machines based on USIII or higher are unsupported.
For my Blade 1000 there is at least the driver for the Schizo PCI-Chip missing.
You should notice a similar error while booting FreeBSD, it should hang at nexus0 without loading or detecting other hardware.

Viele Gruesse,
