erase startup config

   all I would like to do is to erase the startup config file, but when I do a "erase" the only option I have is to erase disk0 or flash. If I do a "write erase" it doesnt give any other options. If I choose either command will it automatically erase what is in ram or will it erase ALL in flash? I do not want to erase the ios version, just the startup config so I can copy a new one in (via notepad copy\paste).

erase startup config

write erase will delete the configuration only

erase startup config

hi,

yes, the write erase command will delete the startup-config and not the IOS image.

do a reload command or reboot the device afterwards.
