This errors are caused with a not supported graphics card, i have the  
same problem with a enterprise 450.

Yes, you can boot whit serial console, it's simple, disconect your  
keyboard and monitor on your SUN, and connect a serial cable to other  
machine, the Sun hardware when not detecting keyboard or video, it  
uses by defect the serial port to have control on the machine, in the  
other machine you need run a minicom or if you use Windos,
