"The router reboots. However, it ignores its saved configuration due to the fact that the configuration register is set to 0x2142. If you see that the router configuration is still present (still previous hostname), it indicates that the configuration register was not changed to 0x2142 in time prior to the crash. If this is the case, start over again (Step 4, Power down and then power up the router with the help of the power switch.). If the configuration register is correctly changed to 0x2142, you get the initial configuration questions after the reload. "
We've tried it over and over, and still it doesn't work....
If setting the configuration register to 0x2142 does not help, try to rename the file AAA-BBB.XXX.cfg in your bootflash: filesystem to a different name (if that's possible using the ROMMON), or redefine the CONFIG_FILE environment variable to a different nonexistent file. That will hopefully make the device to skip loading the configuration and end up with the default settings.
Allready tried CONFIG_FILE=bootflash:CCC.DDD.XXX.cfg (non-existing file in bootflash:)
a rename you can't do in rommon:
rommon 2 > ? alias set and display aliases command break set/show/clear the breakpoint confreg configuration register utility cont continue executing a downloaded image dev list the device table dir list files in file system dis disassemble instruction stream frame print out a selected stack frame help monitor builtin command help history monitor command history meminfo main memory information repeat repeat a monitor command reset system reset set show all monitor variables unalias unset an alias boot boot up an external process context display the context of a loaded image stack produce a stack trace sync write monitor environment to NVRAM sysret print out info from last system return tscope timer scope loop sleep sleep command xmodem x/y modem download
