ASA boot problem

Hello,

I have problem with ASA 5505. One of our customers brought me ASA 5505 with deleted flash. They want me to fix the problem. I tried to load image from rommon mode, but failed many many times. I used 4 different software files. I tried many many times and most often I get :

Cisco Security Appliance admin loader (3.0) #0: Thu Aug  7 20:59:50 MDT 2008
sumval(0x12b7) chksum(0x0   )md5(0x42c85cfa 0xf6dcadb9 0x72f7072f 0xb799f56b)
md5(0xb28e4ed2 0x301e63f0 0xc2fe8317 0xd320bbe2)
Checksum verification on install image failed.

with asa722-k8.bin file.

In one ocasion, when I booted asa804-k8.bin, ASA attempted to boot but stucked immediately and became idle. Noting happened, I leave it 24 hours and noting happened.

Please if someone knows what to do, let me know !!!

Here is the detail output from ASA:

Re: ASA boot problem

HI,

I just reloaded a image to my asa 5505 and did the following.

Saved the image file : asa831-k8.bin and installed a tftp server app (pumpkin)

added the following :

rommon #0> ADDRESS=192.168.0.? (Where this is the address you want to give the asa)
rommon #1> SERVER=192.168.0.? (Where this is the address of the laptop you have pumpkin installed on
rommon #2> IMAGE=asa831-k8.bin
rommon #3> PORT=Ethernet0/1 (As I had the laptop connected to the ASA into this port)

press Enter, should display the following:

Ethernet0/1
MAC Address: 0025.840d.52d8
Link is UP

type :

rommon #4> tftp

when it finished doing its thing I then rebooted the ASA and it loaded the new image.

ASA boot problem

Hi,

Try formatting the flash and load the image again as the procedure that you are using is correct, it's an issue with either image itself or the flash where you are storing it.

Though it looks to me that its an issue with image.

Hope it helps

Cheers,

Naveen

I have the same problem, i

I have the same problem, i tried to upgrade my ASA5505 from 825 to 845 and it works. then i saw it works and boot from 845 image. i delete the original bin. the problem happened this time. when i reload the firewall. it failed to boot. 

the error message is ▒hecksum verification on install image failed.

I tried to load the 825 back from TFTP. but still not working. my license is SEC-BUN.
