Re: 2950 flash question

Sounds like the boot variable is not set. From ROMMON to get the system in boot you need to initialize the flash and boot the image. This can be done by doing the following:

flash_init

load_helper

boot flash:whateveryourfilename.bin

This should boot the switch.

Once the switch is booted go into config mode and set the boot variable by entering:

boot system flash:whateveryourfilename.bin

The article in the following link explains this:

Hope this helps.
