Cisco 7301 Router Bootflash

Unanswered Question

The disk0: from which the router boots from went bad (unable to read the flash card with the image).  There is the bootflash: where the bootloader is stored.  The router is in boot mode router (boot)#

I was able to transfer an image to the bootflash: and change the boot variable but the router did not reload properly.

Is the bootflash: not able to read and load the ios image ?  Is it only for the bootloader ?

Hello Pete,


show bootvar

dir bootflash:

you need a line like

boot system flash bootflash:iosfilename


boot system bootflash:iosfilename

you can check with

dir bootflash:


dir bootflash:iosfilename

Hope to help

It appears the problems affecting disk0: is causing issues with the system bus. I was able to barely see it and it crash again.

Thanks for your input.
