Cisco 7200 Booting Problem

I am having issues with cisco 7200. The router goes into Boot mode after reload.

This is the error message I am getting:

monitor: command "boot" aborted due to exception

System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(8r)B, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

C7200 platform with 262144 Kbytes of main memory

boot: cannot determine first file name on device "slot0:"

Router(boot)#sh file systems

I want to boot from disk2 which has the required IOS on it. It does not go to disk2 even if I specify :

router(config)# boot system flash disk2:IOS name

what is the sequence the router uses when you have different disk systems and memory slots. For example

flash

slot0

slot1

disk0

disk1

what should be the config register value. Does it need to be change?

Thanks..

Hi,

Set the config-register to 0x2102.

Also, use the following boot command (first remove any other boot commands you have):

boot system disk2:

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.
