ASA 5505 Boot issue

I cleared out my previous ASA configuration settings on my ASA 5505 using the write erase command.  All seemed to go as planned and I was expecting to see the preconfigured interactive setup prompts after booting from the reload command.  I didn't.  All I seem to be getting now upon booting up is the following:

My lab manual does not cover what to do if this occurs and I can't seem to get the device to boot to the factory default as expected.  Any suggestions as to how to proceed?
