WS-X45-SUP6L-E keeps resetting with Vector 0 error
I have a 4506-E catalyst with a WS-X45-SUP6L-E running cat4500e-lanbase-mz.122-54.SG1.bin. The switch keeps resetting and the only output we can capture is a single "Vector 0" entry.

Has anyone come across this issue before? I cannot set boot diagnostics to anything other than minimal - the diagnostic bootup level complete command isn't recognised.
