So, I don't have an image on my bootflash: and I don't see a way to get it on there. Here's the output from hyperterminal.

Is this a new CF/PCMCIA card that you are using? If you have another router try to format the card through the router, and re copy the IOS back on to the card. You might want to try downloading a boot helper image to get you out of rommon. What processor are you using in the 7200?

No, it's not new. I have been using it for a while now. What happened is that I did a 'format bootflash:'. But the image that I have always been using is still on slot0:. I don't understand why all of the sudden I can't boot off of the image I always have when the bootflash: helper image is gone. How do you suggest downloading the boot helper image and putting it in bootflash:? I don't have any tftp commands in rommon mode.

Do you have another card that you can use? You will need the card to get the router out of rommon to be able to copy files to bootflash. If this is not an option Xmodem will be able to transfer either the helper or the IOS to bootflash.

No, I don't have another card. This is the same card that was working fine before I did 'format bootflash:'. The IOS image (c7200-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T1.bin) located on slot0: was booting perfectly before I issued that command. I don't have any xmodem commands in rommon mode so that is out of the question.
