Cisco ASA bootproblem

Whenever my ASA boots, it needs more then one attempt to load the IOS. It starts doing it over and over again (mostly 4 or 5 times) At the end, it succeeds and I have a prompt. Doing some research, this does not look oke is it?

ciscoasa# sh boot

BOOT variable =
Current BOOT variable =
CONFIG_FILE variable =
Current CONFIG_FILE variable =

Some add information:

ciscoasa# sh ver
