    I've got a 1720 that I want to use a "Single-Port Ethernet WIC" (Cisco
    WIC-1ENET) with. So I put the WIC into Slot 0, but my IOS didn't know what
    it is. My IOS was too old so I needed a new IOS (which I have), called
    "c1700-y-mz.122-4.T1.bin".

    I'm talking to this 1720 with HyperTerminal. I erased everything I could
    discover as eraseable (nvram, flash), power cycled the router, and ended up
    at the rommon. Eventually I figured out xmodem to get the .bin file onto
    the flash with "xmodem -cyx 122-4.T1.bin" and have HyperTerm send over the
    IOS file.

    All this seemingly goes well, the xmodem completes without errors. So then
    I have it "reset" and here's what it does (my questions are below)

    So exactly what is up with the first boot attempt that gives me this
    message...

    Hello from IFS_TYPE_ROM successful type-check

    %SYS-6-BOOT_MESSAGES: Messages above this line are from the boot loader.
    boot of "rom" using boot helper "flash:122-4.T1.bin" failed
    error returned: rom
    loadprog: error - on file open
    boot: cannot load "rom"

    I'm a newb but I guess this is some sort of boot order of operations, where
    this (above, the first attempt) is failing (for some reason), but the second
    alternate attempt is "working". But I don't know why the first one fails
    (or how it's different). And I don't know a way to tell the router to
    "remember" the "one that works" and boot from it straight away next time.

    But at least it actually sees the WIC (Ethernet0), so I hope I'm making
    progress. I don't understand why the flash .bin fails, but then works, and
    why it decompresses it twice on every reset/boot sequence.
