Dear All,

This is a hypothetical situation:

Someone has erased the IOS from router's flash by accident. The router has reloaded after a power failure a month later. Now the router does not find the IOS in flash and does not boot up.

What is the best way to copy the IOS in flash again and boot to it?

Thanks.

Depends on the specific model.

1. boot to rom (the password recovery procedures show you how)
2. tftp the IOS into flash
