Hi All, When we reboot or Hrad boot the Cisco 6509 its directly going to rommon again to make the switch boot in IOS each and everytime we need to give the command boot, we have checked and found that flash is working fine and even the boot sequence is configured properly.


what could cause this problem ?

Hi Daniel,

juz seen the capture which you hav attached, in that i could see that the register value is set to 0x0, try to change it as 0x2, it works fine.


"set boot config-register 0x2"


hope this helps.

Check your boot statement , if this is a native box it should be "boot system flash sup-bootflash: or "boot system flash disk0: . Anything else will cause it to go to rommon if the config register is correct. It has to be pointed at the supervisor bootflash or disk0 and that is where the image should be located because that is where the initial boot starts , it boots the supervisor then hands it over to the mscf to be loaded.
