Any idea how to work around this error/problem?
ciscoASA5505# reloadSystem config has been modified. Save? [Y]es/[N]o:Y%Error opening disk0:/.private/startup-config (Read-only file system)Error executing commandProceed with reload? [confirm]ciscoASA5505#
I'm remote so formating the flash etc is not a good solution.
Go to Solution.
When you perform the reformat, it will repair the faulty file system. If that can't be repaired, you would need to replace the flash.

Unfortunately you only have 2 options in this situation:
1) Reformat the flash
2) Reload the ASA
Unfortunately none of them is a good solution when you are remote to the ASA.
I was afraid that was my only option.
Actually the unit has been reloaded since the error first appeared, but it persists.
Is is possible to format flash, tftp new IOS/ASDM and startup-config and reload with some assurance that I don't end up with an 'electronic brick'?
When you have issues with your flash, check your flash with fsck.
