I upgraded my PIX 515E ver 6.3(4) to Ver 7.2(1) then the PIX keeps on booting in a loop.
I hit ESC to get to Monitor mode to reload ver 6.3(4):
monitor> address 192.168.1.1
monitor> server 192.168.1.2
monitor> ping 192.168.1.2
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5)
monitor> file pix634.bin
monitor> tftp
tftp pix634.bin@192.168.1.2..................................................................................
...............................................................................................................................
Then it asks for Activation key:
    Part 1 of 4:
    Part 1 of 4:
    Part 3 of 4:
    Part 4 of 4:
I don't have PAK number on the box so I contact Cisco and they give me this 3DES key:
266a1c8b 1fdd0c02 dc869e32 5dbe61b3.
It doesn't work.  
Please tell me what to do.
Thanks.
