6509 Boots to Rommon

    Gang, I have a 6509 IOS native that boots into rommon after we cycle
    it.

    If I type "Boot" at the rommon prompt, everything comes up fine. Show
    Boot shows:
    BOOT variable =
    CONFIG_FILE variable =
    BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17d.SXB11.bin
    Configuration register is 0x102

    Standby is up
    Standby has 458720K/65536K bytes of memory.

    Standby BOOT variable =
    Standby CONFIG_FILE variable =
    Standby BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17d.SXB11.bin
    Standby Configuration register is 0x102

    This started happening after I converted from CAT OS to IOS
    Dir sup-bootflash shows:
    s72033-jk9s-mz.122-18.SXD7a.bin

    Any help would be great.

    You have your boot varible set to boot an invalid image.
    "BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17d.SXB11.bin"

    The image in your flash is:
    "s72033-jk9s-mz.122-18.SXD7a.bin"

    At the rommon prompt type:
    boot:c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17d.SXB11.bin

    After the system comes up correct your bootstring in your config

    Ok, Do I have the wrong images in the wrong spot?

    In Dir bootflash:
    I see
    c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17d.SXB11.bin

    In Dir SUP-Bootflash I see
    s72033-jk9s-mz.122-18.SXD7a.bin

    Do I have those images in the correct place?
    and my bootldr should be c6msfc3-psv-mz.122-17x.SX11.bin?

    When in Rommon, I don't have to specify an image, if I just type boot,
    the system boots fine. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
