unable to boot an image

Unanswered Question
Mar 25th, 2009

I'm getting the following error msg when booting.

No images in /

Error 15: File not found

unable to boot an image

So I'm trying to use tftp in rommon mode but I can not ping anything from either ASA -> laptop or the other direction. I'm not sure I have correct SET variables in rommon mode.

See attached for details on the error as well as the exact steps I have taken so far.

Can anyone help?

I have this problem too.

Does your laptop have the right ip address assigned?? If you laptop is your tftp shouldn't you have to assign 10.10.1.2?

opps, that was a typo on the document I created. The laptop has the correct address which is 10.10.10.2

I made the following changes:

GATEWAY=10.10.10.2

IMAGE=asa804-23-k8.bin

I successfully tftp the image and booted the asa. I did a write mem and reload and it boots back to rommon mode.

So I then, erased disk0: and tried again with same results.

I then downloaded a different image from cisco.com and get the same results.

see the attachment…

I got it working.

After performing the rommon/tftp steps listed above, booted the image:

1. formatted flash again

2. configured the asa int and gateway

3. copy tftp: flash:

4. write mem
