Hi

First question when you are trying to boot are you in the SP Rommon or the RP Rommon?

From what it looks like you are having a problem with a corrupted image in the RP that is your MSFC image. Try to get into the RP Rommon by doing a switch console and then the only way to recover is to use XModem. Trick here is to load a basic boot image so your transfer is faster.

Did you follow the Cisco document when converting if so which step did you face the problem. If you have any captures do attach it here. Can help you if you provide more logs.

Cheers

Hoogen

HI,First of all thank you for your help!

1.First question when you are trying to boot are you in the SP Rommon or the RP Rommon? --How can i check which Rommon mode am i in?

2.From what it looks like you are having a problem with a corrupted image in the RP that is your MSFC image. Try to get into the RP Rommon by doing a switch console and then the only way to recover is to use XModem. Trick here is to load a basic boot image so your transfer is faster. ---I tried to upload the image use XModem,but another problem was appeared,see the captures:

rommon 8 > xmodem -s 38400

Do you wish to continue? (y/n) [n]: y

Console port and Modem must operate at same baud rate.

Use console & modem at 38400 bps for download ? (y/n) [n]: y

Ready to receive file ...Will wait for a minute

Reset your terminal to 9600 baud.

[Note: you may see garbage characters till you do so

Baud rate is correctly set now. Enter y to continue (y/n) [n]: y

Download Complete!

loadprog: error - too many ELF program segments

3.Did you follow the Cisco document when converting if so which step did you face the problem. If you have any captures do attach it here. Can help you if you provide more logs. ---I am not follow the Cisco document when i do this,I just copy the ios image into the BOOTFLASH set the boot option and restart the switch.when the XModem fail,i change another ios image and copy it into a flash card,i want to boot switch use flash card ,but another question was happened.Following is the log information:

Post a "show mod" here so we can see what hardware you have in the box .... do you have a msfc1 or msfc2 . What image did you try to load ?
