    HI All,

    This might sound like a stupid question, but I've got a 2950 that is
    failing to boot. During initialization of the flash I recieve an I/O
    error (block 2). I try and fsck the flash and recieve the same error.
    I am guessing this is fairly terminal but just wondering whether there
    was anything else I could do to get this working.

    Thanks

    Paul

    After you load a valid image (either via X,Y or Zmodem, or TFTP using
    ROMMON) and boot the box, format the flash, copy an image to it and reboot.
    If you get the same error, the flash is bad and you will need to RMA it.
