New ASA 5500 - no default config at startup

Started the box up with console connected and received the message that no image could be found. So I went into Rommon and set up an interface to work with my TFTP server. Copied .bin over fine and started up. But when I go to save to memory I get this:

"%Error opening disk0:/.private/startup-config (No device available)"

and when I do a show flash, I get this:

"%Error show flash: (No device available)"

Does this mean my machine was shipped with no flash memory?? Where can I look to figure out what I'm doing wrong? I loaded on 7.2 btw. I also tried 8.0 but same thing.

Thanks in advance,

It looks like the Flash has been corrupted. So, you most probably need to open a TAC case and RMA the chassis.
