Well, what is the rear to you is the front to Cisco and vice-versa... do you have a compact flash card in it at all? If so, take it out.

to clarify, the "pretty" side is technically the rear and the side with all the WIC card slots is the front.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

If you dont want to remove any flash cards, you can also enter
ROMmon by hitting a break sequence during the boot sequence:
A break sequence is usually (depends on terminal software, OS, etc.)
singe Break key
Ctrl-Break
Alt-Break
Alt-b
(or press all the above one after another to make sure )

once in rommon, just follow Cisco steps from step 5.

This was standard procedure for a long time. Not to mention much more
professional than pulling out flash cards and works without a screwdriver too :)

Tried using the BREAK sequence first... to no avail.  Removing the flash worked first time like a charm.  We are back up...  rock n rollin !!!

1,000 Thanks mate!
