Recently, one of my companies/customers 1601-R's has been stopping at the bootstrap (rommon) prompt and not loading the boot image upon a power cycle. I verified the config reg is set to 2101 via a show version (below).
It becomes a problem for them when I'm not on site if there is a power issue as they have to link up serially and issue a "reset" command to get the router out of rommon mode. Also a problem on nights and weekends when no one is on site.
Is there something simple I'm forgetting to look for? Any ideas?

Just a second ago, I found a link off Google that pointed to an old post here where another user had the exact same problem. It was suggested that; if the console cable was plugged in, the 1601 would run bootstrap, else, it would load the image as required. I won't have time to try that for a bit as it's a 24/7 unit, however, it appears to have resolved his issue. Very weird! I called a buddy who's just finishing up his CCE training and he never heard of such an issue either, so it's nothing new!
