    I've got this router that rebooted and now shows "routername"(boot)
    and I can't seem to get it to boot normally. Here is the config it's

    Have you tried erasing the startup config?
    router#erase start
    then issue the command
    the router will then ask if you want to save any changes made. answer with "no" and then continue with the reload. That should take care of your problem. If not, then you might have to reload the IOS by TFTP.

    let it boot to router<boot>. then erase flash and nvram. reboot and go into rommon and issue the command "confreg 0x2102" then reboot
    it will start in router<boot> again go ahead and configure the ethernet port on the router and then issue the command " copy tftp flash" put in the IP address of your tftp server, then type in the name of your IOS image: example- c1600-k8osy-mz.122-15.T16.bin . I had to do all of this today after trying to upgrade the ios on my 1601.
    Good luck

    Cisco router name (boot)>

    I had this problem as well, turns out that when I had tried to reset the password I hadnt changed the config-register back to waht it sould be.
    Try going into enable mode and then into config mode

    Hostname (boot)(config)# or something like this and the type

    Hostname(boot)(config)# config-register 0x2102
    then Ctrl-C out of config mode and type reload
