    Hi everyone
    I just loaded a new IOS on my 2611 and it will not boot. I keep
    getting the message '
    open: file "n" not found
    open(): Open Error = -1
    loadprog: error - on file open
    boot: cannot load "flash:n"
    and when i try to manually boot the flash this is the message I get. I
    am completely out of ideas.

    rommon 2 > boot flash:c2600-i-mz.122-12a
    open: file "c2600-i-mz.122-12a" not found
    open(): Open Error = -1
    loadprog: error - on file open
    boot: cannot load "flash:c2600-i-mz.122-12a"
    rommon 3 >

    If anyone has any clue please tell me.
    Thanks

  2. My guess is that you copied a bad file up to the router, wiping out
    the old IOS image, and happened to call the new image 'n'.

    Do you have any 'boot system' commands in your config?

    Do a 'dir' boot the file that you find there.

    I suspect you'll find it contains 'n' as a file, and that it is corrupt.

    You most likely will have to TFTP boot an IOS image off your TFTP server
    and go from there.

  3. well - it says you didnt type it right ...
    look at the real filename in flash and type it just as it looks there.

    I tried your dir bootflash: command and it gave me a bad device name
    error. does that mean ios is corrupt?
    Thanks for all your feedback

    Really?

    Do you see a file extension on the command you entered?

    "rommon 2 > boot flash:c2600-i-mz.122-12a"

    What if you had two files in flash named c2600-i-mz.122-12a.bin, and
    c2600-i-mz.122-12a.tar?

    Wouldn't you need to specify an extension?

    He also suggested "dir flash:".

    Post the output of "dir flash:", and any "boot system" statements in the
    existing config.

    You did backup a copy of the existing config before you commenced this
    process, didn't you?

    I did a dir flash: already and it is the only file that is up. there
    is no .tar file. it states that it is the only file on.

    You mis-understood my point.

    I was not suggesting that both files existed. I was giving you an
    example of "why" extensions should be specified when entering commands.

    The following is from your post. Note the absence of the file extension.

    "rommon 2 > boot flash:c2600-i-mz.122-12a"

    I was trying to get you to specify the extension in the command; to
    share the output of "dir flash:", and the "boot system" statements in
    the existing config so we could end the flailing.

    rommon command output from a functioning 2600 router:

    rommon 6 > dir flash:
    File size Checksum File name
    16083780 bytes (0xf56b44) 0x1c3a c2600-ik9o3s3-mz.123-26.bin

    rommon 7 > boot flash:c2600-ik9o3s3-mz.123-26.bin
    program load complete, entry point: 0x80008000, size: 0xf56a28
    Self decompressing the image : #################

    If this is not what you get when you enter the same commands ( using
    the filename from your router),
    then you will need to get documentatiin on the rommon tftpdnld command
    and TFTP a new IOS image to flash:
