Cisco 4506 Keeps Booting Into ROMMON After Trying To Upgrade ROMMON

Hello All,

I have a Cisco 4506 that I tried to upgrade the ROMMON on.  I used the upgrade procedures detailed in the "Upgrading the Supervisor Engine ROMMON from the Console" section of the document found at the link below:


The ROMMON version I tried to upgrade to was:

I followed the instructions, but now the switch just keeps booting to ROMMON and not the IOS.  Any ideas?

You might have a wrong boot command in your config

could look like
boot system bootflash:cat4000-i9k91xxxxxxxxxxxxx.bin

Check the config register
You probably can boot the image you have on disk by giving the boot command
either just boot
or boot bootdisk:cat4000-i9k91xxxxxxxxxxxxx.bin

think you can do
sh dev
and the dir bootdisk: to view what is on the bootdisk
you might have to set the boot register to correct value
config-register 0x2102  would start from bootdisk
