hi i accidentally deleted my 'ios' so not even sure if i had an indentical copy so i was forced to try and copy another 3640 type ios as i have a selection:
my router is a 3600 series with 4 serial & 2 fastethernet port. i have various 3640 ios types but when i use one of these versions it appears to copy as normal via my tftp/xmodem set as 115200, but then states: erasing flash....032x0000 - hex changes intermitantly
as a result of deleting accidentally my 'ios' i was taken to 'rommon mode'
so i followed instructions:
- i got as far as step 4 but eventually my router now just reboots round in circles, so ive obviously selected something for this to happen. not sure what
- ive noticed it states - "wrong system software for this hardware"
i then wait for a long period of time and it reverted back to: rommon mode
when i reboot the router or do: ctrl/alt/break etc it appears to just hang, so not sure if i should just leave it and just wait...!!!
question. can anyone help ?
