2821 compact flash format

The original CF was missing when I had a 2821 router returned. I have a new 64MB flash card but unable to load thru ROMMON. I get the message "ERR: Not enough memory to download image". The file I am trying to upload is only 12MB. Suggestions? Any way to load the system from a USB flash?

Re: 2821 compact flash format

do like you normally would in rommon to load the image via a tftp server but when you go to do the tftpdnld, add the -r option, so "tftpdnld -r". The router should load the image into ram without trying to write it to flash, and then startup, which will allow you to reformat the flash and then you can do a normal copy tftp flash to load the image onto your flash.
