Try the following command in ROMMON

rommon 1 > confreg 0x2102

rommon 2 > reset

If it still boot in ROMMON, try this link http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/products_tech_note09186a0080094a0b.shtml

If the first link doesn't fix the problem, try this link

Contact your vendor then, the flash maybe faulty. The error -66 looks like hardware, can't find it in Cisco web
