Catalyst 6509 switch

I have a problem with one of our catalyst 6509 switches. We had power problem and when I tried to power the switch on after the power was restored it take me to the rommon.

rommon>

I urgently need answers to three questions and would therefore appreciate it if anyone can help me out.

1. What is the cause of the switch not booting from flash but going to rommon?

2.How do I get into the switch and

3.How do I reset the switch to boot from flash and not going to the rommon

Hope a savior comes to my aid

Re: Catalyst 6509 switch

Probably went into rommon due to incorrect or missing boot statement . You must already be in the switch if you know it is in rommon . If this is a native IOS box then just issue the "boot bootflash: " command and this should boot the box . Once booted up make sure the boot statement is correct . "boot system flash sup-bootflash: .
