16384K bytes of processor board System flash (Read ONLY)
I tried to upgrade the IOS using "copy tftp flash". It was doing great and looking good until it started download past the 8MB first flash stick and began writing into the 2nd flash stick. At this point the copy failed due to read only settings on hardware! On hardware!??? What, like a dipswitch that is not set or something? I tried switching Flash sticks around, but either slot the new one is in, it won't write due to read only.
So now I'm stuck in RxBoot (version 10.2). I tried to issue the "no partition flash" command, but it's not supported until 10.3.
What is going on, why does my 2nd memory stick not function whatsoever, except at calculating the size. One would think that if the IOS can recognize then it works, but noooooo. If i try to do 'no partition flash' within a running IOS then I can't issue the erase command since the flash becomes read-only when not in rxboot mode. Where/how do i upgrade the bootstrap software, or is that not needed?
Re: Bought new flash memory but getting errors, 2501 router
What is the version of the bootROM on your router? Some old versions like 4.x or 5.x only support 8M flash maximum. If this is the case, you need to upgrade the bootROM version to 11.x or so to support 16M flash on your router.
