I have a dead Cisco 7204 router - the bootflash has been corrupted and I have a CF card with a valid boot image, but it can't be recognized by the router because it wasn't formatted in a 7200 router - from what I can gather from researching my options (no support contract w/Cisco of course) is that when the CF card is formatted in a 7200 router, it puts a file on the CF card during formatting that allows the ROMMON to read the FAT directory during boot - I need that file - it's located on the eprom on the router, but I can't find anywhere on the web where I can download it from - the filename is c7200-atafslib-m...

If someone has access to a CF card in a 7200 router that has this file on it - I'd appreciate a heads up, or if someone has a 7200 router with a NPE-G1 card that could format my CF card for me, that would work as well...

The file is supposedly "hidden", in terms of its attributes, but I'm not sure that matters to the router...

Have you tried booting the router into the boot image and formating the flash from there? See here for instructions on how to load the boot image:-
