Hi, I recently found out a refurbished CE507 and decided to turn it back into production. I connected a console cable to it and saw that it is not able to boot at all. The boot procedure stops at loading the boot file and the CE reloads again.
I changed the boot params to boot from net (ftp or tftp, tried both). I downloaded some "images" from the CCO. With all of them, the same happens - the CE starts reading the file and claims that its invalid:
Attaching network interface lo0... done.
Error loading file: errno = 0xd0003.
Can't load boot file!!
The image that I am passing to the CE507 is: acns53.sysimg
Below is the output from the boot prompt of the CE:
Ahh ... the 507. That is very old hardware. There is no CD drive. I would recommend that you try using a 4.x sysimg. You will most likely need to install 4.x, then follow the 4.x to 5.x upgrade procedures on CCO.
I did some more investigation into the errors you are seeing. It looks like the CE is running the cache 2.x bootloader software. This software does not know how to load sysimg files. You will need to follow the upgrade instructions located here:
