ASA5550 unable to finish boot process

Hi Pankaj, we tried with different OS versions but same result.

Also we modified config-register to avoid loading the config but same result.

Thanks for your replies.

Hello Abel,

I would recommend that you share the entire console output the ASA shows or you can go and format the flash and if this does not help then we will need to replace the unit but first let's take a look at the outputs, then we will proceed with the format-flash and finally if we have not find the fix RMA will be the way to go.
