I have a (1) POD CCNP lab setup that I recently started up for some practice labs. (2) of my 2501 routers seem to have some kind of issue but I'm having trouble isolating. Below are the errors I'm seeing. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is it a bad flash, bad board, etc.? I'm thinking the whole board is bad but I want to make sure before I replace it.
%Error: System flash bank 1 chip 3 unknown, chip id 0xC0C (reversed = 0x3030)
%Error: System flash initialization failed
It then boots to this mode:
Looks like your Flash memory could be stuffed. How much flash memory has the router got? If it has 16Mb take out one of the chips and see if it will boot with only one.
