I had a 3650 switch go down. Tried to reboot, but it was stuck in boot.  Tried to reboot in ROMMON and was still stuck in boot.  Any suggestions?

looks a corrupt image..
do you have a tftp server set up....
option one:
Using a console connection, reboot the router.

Once you bring it back up, send a BREAK either with keyboard commands or from your terminal software. That should take you into ROMMON.

At the rommon 1> prompt, type confreg 0x2142.

At the rommon 2? prompt, tyep reload.

This forces the router to reload from flash, but does not load it's saved config.

Press Crtl-C to skip the auto config.

Type enable at the router> prompt.

To start from a clean slate type write erase.

Go into global config mode using config t.

Type config-register 0x2102.

Exit config mode.

Reload.

When the router comes back up, you should be presented with the initial configuration prompts, just as if the router was brand new


option 2:
Rommon>confreg

We power cycled it, but it gets stuck in boot mode. We power cycled it again and tried to get  into rommon, but it still remains in boot mode.
