ASA 5505 formatted disk - HELP

Hi

My background is Wintel servers, but thought I should get to grips with some Cisco networking so brought a second hand ASA 5505 from eBay for home to play with. When it arrived the previous config had not been cleaned down and there was a password set.

I had a look online and got some instructions on entering ROMMON to erase the config. Unfortunatly I didn't really know what I was doing and erased the disk by running the command 'erase all' thinking the firware was in ROM and the config would be stored on the disk.

As a result, I now have a nice door stop!!! I'm able to boot into ROMMON and have found instructions to restore the ROM from a TFTP server which I've set up, though I cannot download the required firmware from Cisco as I don't have a support contract.

Any advice on how I could get this back up and running would be really really appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Thomas

Hi,

The only way is to download the image and upload it through tftp from ROMMON. There is no other way to get it back up.
