Unable to boot VG224

I have a VG224 which I can't boot.

When it tried to boot, it says it can't find an IOS image, and drops me at the rommon prompt.

Doing a "dir slot0:" in rommon gives me one of two messages. Either:

  - dir: cannot open device "slot0:"

Or

open: file "c2400-atafslib-m" not found

open(): Open Error = -1

loadprog: error - on file open

cannot load the monitor library "slot0:%c2400-atafslib-m" for device: slot0:

dir: cannot open device "slot0:"

I've tried different compact flash cards (used previously in other Cisco devices and having copied across the VG224 firmware)

I've tried doing a "Reset" between the swapping of the compact flash cards, and still no joy.

I've tried reformating a flash card on a XP machine as FAT and copying the VG224 firmware onto that, but still the same.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks,

GTG

For some reason, it seems that VG22's have a special format on the compact flash that only VG224s can write. It looks like DOS FAT, but isn't.

*sigh*

Hi Ross,

I was just referring the below link.Since Formatting flash is not possible from Rommon, that is the reason , I told u to use another VG224.
