Re: try to do password recovery

Ayman,

You seem to be trying to solve two different issues - one is the fact that the password recovery procedure is disabled on your device. You may proceed with the password recovery but that will result in erasing your current configuration instead of just booting with the configuration ignored but intact.

Another issue in your case seem to be related to the fact that you are apparently unable to boot from your CF card. Perhaps the filesystem is corrupted, or it was not formatted under IOS. Do you have a similar router you could borrow the CF card from and boot it in your router?

Best regards,

Peter
