Error POST error on SunFire V245

I've recently bought an SunFire V245.

2x 2.5ghz x64
4gb ram
4x 73gb sas hdd

and... an blinking 'Identifior led' (white) with 'Service led' (amber) simultaneously.

It boots for +- 5 secs and then the error occurd.

Things done:

Removed all hdd.
Switched cpu
Switched/removed ram
removed and booted WITHOUT nvram
removed and booted WITHOUT battery

I saw that SUN has EOL'ed the V245, so my only option is 'hoping' that there are forums to help me, or waith on an auction for another chance of buying a V245. (this one has cost me 50 so... Smilie)

just login to the alom. Poweron the server and capture the output from the console!
