hi all,

I'm a bit confused - the last

I'm a bit confused - the last section of your post seems to indicate you are at the enable mode prompt ("ciscoasa#"). Did you boot from tftp or something to get there?

In any case, have you tried to format the flash? ("format disk0:"). That's the last ditch step described here if you don't have TAC support to get an RMA.

Hi Marvin,Yes, the last

Hi Marvin,

Yes, the last section I was able to boot from TFTP. But I can't upload the image from TFTP to flash even after formatting the flash.

It looks like RMA is needed for this box.
