  • Cisco Employee,

I suggest that you boot from the MSFC bootflash. The MSFC bootflash which is 16MB cannot fit both c6msfc-boot-mz.121-19.E1 and c6msfc-dsv-mz.121-19.E1. But in 12.1(19)E1, you do not need the boot loader image even for a MSFC1. So, just copy the c6msfc-dsv-mz.121-19.E1 image to the MSFC and boot using it.
