Hi Rajesh

No it's not a hardware fault. If you want to see where you images are stored do a

router# dir all-filesystems

This will print out all the files and tell you where your image is stored eg. from one of our 7206vxr routers

7206_vxr#dir all-filesystems

As you can see IOS images on disk1 so you can now do

router# dir disk1:

Re: error : slot 0 failed

To see what file systems you have available, issue the following command:

"show file systems"

Where there are numbers - there is storage. Dashes means there is nothing there.

In your case "FLASH" is just a symbolic link to device "Slot0", you really don't have to worry. Just use Slot1 or Bootflash.
