    Hi there,
    I ran erase disk0 by mistake and then rebooted the device, so I received
    this message and it kept rebooting
    No images in /
    Error 15: File not found

    unable to boot an image


    Failsafe booting engaged.
    Default configuration file contains 1 entry.

    Searching / for images to boot.

    No images in /
    Error 15: File not found

    unable to boot an image

    I setup a TFTP server and loaded another image came with CD.
    asa724-k8.bin
    System is up and I ran write mem but if I reboot it would give me same error
    message and unable to boot an image.
    Any idea how to fix it?

    Thanks-Rob

    First transfer the image to the disk0
    copy tftp disk0:

    Address or name of remote host []? 172.16.31.1
    Source filename []? asa724-k8.bin
    Destination filename [asa724-k8.bin]?
    Accessing
    tftp://172.16.31.1/asa724-k8.bin...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    After you have copied the file enter the command
    boot system disk0:/asa722-k8.bin

    You probably would have noticed this but just to be on the safe side :)

    The command at the end should be
    boot system disk0:/asa724-k8.bin
    since you stated that you are working with version asa724-k8.bin

    | You have to get to a command prompt before you can issue the commands you're giving,

    Read again what Rob wrote.

    He's problem was that after he would tftp the image he wasn't telling
    the ASA to use the new image after it is rebooted. After each reboot the
    asa was still looking for the old image.

    I guess you don't know how to get into rommon to do the thtp procedure?
    Here is a howto:

    Step 3 is what you are looking for:

    Step3: When the appliance starts, press the Escape key on your keyboard
    to force the appliance to enter ROMMON mode.
