804 won't boot.

In my seeming unending capacity for genius I killed the image on my 804. The plan was to upgrade. I'm now stuck in rommon. I've fallen and I can't get up!

Can someone help me out of the hole I've dug?

Re: 804 won't boot.

Hello,

you might want to check the following document:

Field Notice: Cisco 801-805 and Cisco 811 and 813 Boots into TinyROM

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps380/products_field_notice09186a00800940ec.shtml

There are two solutions offered depending on the IOS release you are using.

HTH,

Re: 804 won't boot.

Thanks for your time Gents. But I'm in deeper than that!

there is no IOS image to boot from. From rommon I've setup a tftp download and boot. I THINK the problem is that the tftp is putting the image into RAM, not flash. With the image sitting in RAM there's insufficient room to open it and run it.

here you can see the download and attempted boot:

yurindeepDooDoonow# boot

TFTP initiated.

Build [BLD-v120_4_t_throttle.V120_4_T1 4.T1] -- Tue May 18 09:48:59 PDT 1999

tftp: succeeded (9 seconds).

Booting up ..

boot: failed, "not enough memory"

and here's what the file system looks like:

yurindeepDooDoonow# list

Status Size Dev Name

---r-x 2466K ram c800-y6-mw

------ 48K flash TinyROM-1.0(2)

8128K free 8192K total

(Please remember, I'm in rommon.) I can't find a "copy" or "move" with which to relocate the file from RAM to flash.

Nor can I find a way to point the tftp to flash instead of RAM.

anyone? ....anyone?

also, this is the smallest image I can find (IP only)...the funny name stems from me renaming it to minimize characters, I had some problems with tftp.

Confused? me too...

Re: 804 won't boot.

Have you tried save? That will move the image from ram to flash.

save file

Re: 804 won't boot.

Have you tried the tftpdnld command? This is used for disaster recovery and will load the file to flash overwritting anything already there. See website below for this procecure.

Hope this helps.

Re: 804 won't boot.

"tftpdnld" is for the 2600 series. The 800 equivalent is a 2 part process, "upload tftp" then "save file".

Re: 804 won't boot.

The website is showed is for the 800 series router and shows it as an available rommon command. Unfortunately I don't have an 800 to verify this with.
