Change Config-register to boot into setup

I change the config register to 0x102, but now when i erase the startup-config and reload the router, it still boots up and doesn't go into the setup mode like it did before, i forgot to write down the config. reg. before i changed it! uh oh!... does anyone know how to make it so that once the startup config is erase, when the router is reloaded it enters setup mode? thanks.

Re: Change Config-register to boot into setup

with Config-register 0x2142 and reload will force the router to boot up without the stored config and it will ask the setup question..

Another way::Just do "write erase" and "reload" and say "no" when asked to save the config...Router "should" get in the initial setup mode..Thx..Tejal

Re: Change Config-register to boot into setup

or just type "setup" in router# and you will have the setup mode
