2501 Router stuck in Boot mode

The router comes up NS_Gitmo(boot)>

I used the Write Erase command to start reconfiguration of the router. Since then I cannot hyperterminal into it. I have to console into it with a digital VT510 monitor with keyboard. This of coarse does not let me utilize TFTP to download a new IOS into flash. It will let me enter line commands. After reloading it says: Loading network-config.......(time-out)

Loading cisconet.cfg........(time-out)

Loading ns_gitmo-config......(time-out)

Loading ns_gitmo.cfg.........(time out)

I hit return and I get the boot prompt again. Any hope for this router????

Re: 2501 Router stuck in Boot mode

Do a sh flash and see if you have a valid IOS. If you do do the following

conf t

no service config

boot system flash:

wr mem

reload.
