Catalyst3550 boot error, please help

There was an error "Non-free molecules were seen on the notify ring", when the system was booting. The system reloads for several times and then stoped there.

Did anybody meet such situation? Pls help.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Catalyst3550 boot error, please help

This switch has failed POST tests. It normally indicates a hardware failure. I suggest that you open a TAC Case
