Can you show what comes up when you plug a console cable into the console port and boot up?
There are many reasons why a Sup module might boot into ROMMON so more information would help me to work out what might be wrong.
rommon 1 > set
PS1=rommon ! >
rommon 2 > show boot
BOOT variable = cat4000.5-5-21.bin,1;
Configuration reg is 0x10f
console baud: 9600
boot: image specified by the boot system commands
autoboot state = 2
autoboot count = 0
autoboot sptr = 0
The system will now begin autobooting.

rommon 1 >
there is no image in it,I tried to load it up from a tftpServer 192.168.0.169,and the SUP load from an image from tftpserver but still boot into ROM Monitor.But I can't copy an image into bootflash: using tftpserver.
Can you please answer these further questions:
1. What command did you use to copy from a tftp server?
2. What error did you get get when trying to copy?
3. Have you got an ethernet cable plugged into the management ethernet port on the supervisor (to the left of the console port), and have you got a link light?
Now, please try the following:
1. type "unset boot"
2. Change your IP address to 192.168.1.130 and the default gateway. You MUST set a default gateway for it to work and this is where I think your problem is. You can do this by:
set interface fa1 192.168.1.130 255.255.255.0
set ip route default 192.168.1.169
3. Type "ping 192.168.1.169"
***Can you ping this IP?***
4. Try your IOS copy again.
Hope this helps.
Hi..ru sure that ur able to connect with the tftp server,or u can do one thing,u load the iamge file at one workstaion and give the following command.
ROMMON > boot filename [ip-address]
Manually boots the router from a network file.
In the following example, a router is manually booted from the network
Add the following command to your config , "set boot system flash bootflash:cat4000.5-5-21 " . This will put the correct boot statement in . If it goes to rommon first , then issue command "boot bootflash:cat4000.5-5-21" , then once booted up add set boot system flash bootflash:cat4000.5-5-21 .
I set my PC 192.168.0.169,and UP the TFTP service,
ROMMON> boot cat4000.5-5-21.bin
****The TFTP Service indecates that the Switch Downloaded the image cat4000.5-5-21.bin from my TFTPSERVER****
when the download-process finished,it couldn't boot up,returned to ROMMON>.There is something like that the image was loaded into RAM but not running.
I describe my process:
I set my PC IP:192.168.0.169/24,
ROMMON>set ip interface me1 192.168.0.130 255.255.255.0
ROMMON>set ip route default 192.168.0.169
Then I UP my tftp Service on my PC,put the image cat4000.5-5-21.bin at the right DIRECTION.And connected the link to ME ethernet port.
192.168.0.169 is alive.
****The 4003 loads the image,this can be see at TFTP service console.******
It seemed that 4003 loads the image into RAM,but can't boot up.It returns to ROMMON>
Please show whole output from the console from when you typed the commands in.
Can you please type:
(you need to put bootflash: in front of the image name)
Hope this helps
