Can't install 11.3 from USB on 5220

Hi,

I have T5220 sparc server and I want to install Solaris 11.3 on that. From notes, I know that 11.4 will not be supported.
It is old server, which had hardware RAID (with SAS card). I removed connection from that card and directly inserted both cables on motherboard because I want to get rid of hardware RAID. Card is still there inside server, but both HDD cables are connected on MB now.
I created bootable USB drive (which worked in earlier installation) and trying to boot server from that USB. It boots well, then wait for long time (at "Preparing image for use") and then come in maintenance mode, instead of booting in installation mode. I tried with - text as well as with no argument, but result is same.
What could be wrong, which I am missing here ?

Update - Had to reboot couple of times, and then I was able to boot with USB. Consider this thread as solved.
Thanks
