Hi I have a new Cisco 3845 and am at the ROMON console. I need to download the approapriate IOS however I cannot get a list of the hardware installed. How can I get this if there is no SHOW command in ROMMON? After I get past the hardware list I can do the rest. Thanks.
Go to the Cisco Feature Navigator and choose "Search by Feature".
The 3800 ISR has two USB slots and it can support USBs up to 2Gb. You can copy the IOS from the 64mb CF into the USB and back again into the 256mb CF. If you want to use the USB, be sure your format the USB (and the 256mb CF) first before putting any files in there using the command "format usbflash0:".
If you want to upgrade the IOS, be aware of the limitations/requirements of the new IOS base on your DRAM.
Hope this helps.
I have never heard of a "new" box coming with no IOS . Are you sure there isn't one in flash ? Do a dir flash: and see if anything is in there . You could also try from the rommon prompt , "boot flash: "
