T2000 Sparc server fails boot

I have a T2000 enterprise SPARC server that's no longer on contract with Oracle. It's on old firmware (6.3.x). After a power-down this weekend, it won't boot normally. Boot snapshot at the bottom of the post.

It can boot to cdrom, and it'll boot to failsafe mode, but it won't do a regular boot, nor will it boot to single user mode. It's ZFS.

Nothing has changed, BUT it would appear that the onboard battery had failed, and the time reverted to 1999. ALOM works. I set the date using ALOM and rebooted, and it fails in the same way.

I thought perhaps CPU1 failed, but disabling the CPU in ALOM and rebooting just moved the problem to CPU2.

What is your ALOM version? Did you apply patches to the Solaris installation?

Boot verbose - both CD and normal. What's different?

no patches - because I'm not under oracle contract, can't download them. I would love to get my hands on SysFW 6.7.13 and 139434-10.

@achnele
The post differs with a panic after CPU2, but it doesn't seem to help (I disabled CPU1 because it failed here last time). If I disable CPU2, the panic moves to CPU3.

In case it matters, I'm still seeing this - as I haven't replaced the battery yet. That's next. The date has been set manually through ALOM.

There is something wrong with your hypervisor firmware.
Maybe it is too old, not supported by the current Solaris?

Firmware updated.

still no difference.
