ASA 5520 boots to rommon #0> and doesn't fully load w/o typing boot

Answered Question

Hi, had to do a password recovery but must have typed something incorrect. Our ASA5520 now only boots to rommon #0> and we have to type "boot" to get it to fully load. Software version asa804-k8.bin.

Tried to go back to factory default, but still only boots to the rommon #0. Thanks, Chris.

I have this problem too.

Sounds like your config register has been set to the wrong value. To set it back to default

no config-register

save and then reload your ASA -
