Re: Urgent help 4948 IOS

Hi there,

When you're in rommon mode, can you see if you have a IOS image stored on the device?

I think from memory to see what file systems you have you would use the command:

rommon> dev

it should list the bootflash: directory as that is what the 4948's use.

then issue the command

rommon>dir bootflash:

If there's a valid image in there, you can see what the boot variable is using by issuing the command

rommon>set

if the boot variable is not set you can set it by issuing the command.

rommon>BOOT=bootflash:XXXXXXXX.bin

or simply try to boot the image using

rommon>boot bootflash:xxxxxxxxx.bin

If there's no image in bootflash, you need to get one there..

This page should help you in this regard.
