C7200-I/O-GE/E on NPE-300

I do have a C7200VXR chassis with an NPE300 and wanted to replace the C7200-I/O-FE controller with an C7200-I/O-GE/E. According to the Cisco specs this should be an supported combination. I am running a 12.0.21S8 boot image. However after the first boot line I do not get response anymore from the console port. Also no warning, error messages etc. Does anybody has experience with this combination and this problem ?


Re: C7200-I/O-GE/E on NPE-300

the NPE-G1 will be installed in a router with either an C7200-I/O-GE/E or C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller, copy your running configuration to a Flash Disk, not a PC card. PC cards are not supported on these I/O controllers when an NPE-G1 is present. If you copy the running configuration to a PC card with these I/O controllers present, you will not be able to retrieve the running configuration after the NPE-G1 is installed.The console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1 are disabled by Cisco IOS when an I/O controller is present; the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller are active
