How to Hardware Factory reset a Cisco ASA 5520?

Hi all,

 

I am trying to reset my Cisco ASA 5520 to the factory settings using the Reset button but it is not working.

 

I tried pressing the reset button for 15 seconds, and then for 30 seconds and nothing happens... What am I doing wrong? 

I don't have access to that ASA anymore (i.e don't know its IPs) so that's why I need to reset it.

Cheers!

Stop at step 11 and you will be in a default configuration.

Unfortunately, I don't have the Console cable anymore...
