Cisco FlexConnect 7510 won't boot to backup image, stuck on "cisco bootloader loading stage2"

Cisco FlexConnect 7510 won't boot to backup image. Yesterday I uploaded 8.1.102.0 to our master controller and restarted it when evertyhing was complete, the controller did not restart into 8.1.102.0 it is stuck on the screen that says "cisco bootloader loading stage2" I have hard reset the box with the power button and tried a couple of times. I have looked at the documentation to break the boot with the "ESC" key but that isn't doing anything for me either, changed keyboards even, comes to the white cisco screen F2 for Setup / F12 for Boot menu etc, but I am not able to use the keyboard to break into this sequence. I have my slave controller running 8.0.110.0 right now as it failed over and took controll when the master went for the restart. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Matt

This happens when you connect a computer monitor directly to the WLC.  If you connected into the WLC using the console port, you shouldn't be seeing this.

Thanks for the ratings, Matt.

Thanks for the ratings, Matt. 

 

I just got a brand new 8540 a few days ago and made the same "mistake" of plugging the monitor directly to the controller.  I did this because I has to rebuild a 3355 and it worked fine with this setup.  

Re: "cisco bootloader loading

Hi Leo,

I am using WLC C8540 and fired it up for the first time.

The VGA port at the controller is covered by a patch already.

Hence I am using multiport console for the same and getting this error.

"Cisco Bootloader Loading stage2..." its stuck here.

any help would be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you.
