C6500 SUP1a MSFC2. Switch boots but mod 15 never comes up. Why? I accidently loaded a native IOS on a switch running CatOS. I cannot delete the native IOS off the bootflash no matter what. I can get to switch console and rommon but that is it. I have pulled a good CatOS image from another switch onto a PC card and put it into the slot, but SLOT0: is not enabled or recognized. I have tried to load a bootloader to bootflash but it finishes, errors out and sits and ROMMON. Of course, I cannot get to the MSFC bootflash from inside the switch side.
Bad news. It does not matter because I cannot get to the bootflash on the MSFC2. I tried bringing what I thought is a good CatOS for mod 15 over (c6msfc2-jsv-mz.121-19.e1.bin) on a PC Card-slot0: but that won't initialize and read the image-it won't boot off the slot0:. I do not know what else to do at this point. I have a really expensive L2 switch sitting here now.
I finally got it. I had tried a boot loader image before...but it would just error out or just sit there. I tried it again with the xmodem terminal set at 38400 and it worked like a champ. Recovered the switch and life is good. Go figure. I used the 12.1.19e1a image.
