When ever I power up the 4500, it goes to ROMMON and sits there until I manually type in "boot" and hit enter. After the manual boot, everything seems to work fine. This switch hasn't been used for awhile so I am not sure what/who caused this to happen. Since it does boot, I know the image is there and OK. I have tried running boot system flash cat4500-ipbase-mz.122-31.SGA6.bin command multiple times but it keeps booting into ROMMON mode.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

You need to use "erase" rather than "delete" ie. "erase cat4000_flash:vlan.dat
Can you remove these commands:
boot system flash
boot system flash:cat4500-ipbase-mz.122-31.SGA6.bin
and just have one command with booting the sytem from bootflash ?
