Re: Please help format flash in rommom !

You cannot format a flash card from the rommon mode. To list the files present in the flash from the rommon, do a 'dir flash:'. There should not be a space between the word flash and colon. If there is no image in there, then insert a flash card with an image and boot up the device. Or else, you need to transfer an image using xmodem or tftpdnld.

You can use these as a reference:

Eject the CF and stick it into a multi-card reader and attach it to your client.  If windows, format to FAT16 format.
