this prompt  "router(boot)#"  means that router has a corrupt or lost the Cisco IOS image.

check the correct IOS on the PCMCIA for the processor for example:

c7200p-xxxx-xxxx.bin  (where p is for NPE-G2)

c7200-xxxx-xxxxx.bin  this is  for a NPE-G1 processor card.

I hope this help

Hello Ocporbust,

have you installed the NPE-G2 on a c7206 VXR chassis where you had before an older NPE and you have removed the I/O controller?

be aware that on older NPE configuration file NVRAM is located on I/O controller and this changes on NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 see


about IOS images again ios images for NPE G1 and G2 have different names


if you haven't uploaded with TFTP you old config is on the i/O controller but even if you have chosen to keep it on the chassis it is not accessible from new NPE engines.

Hope to help
