I do not have a cross over cable and have to use xmodem. I set the baud rate to 115200 and I can see everything fine. Using Tera Term when you send the file via xmodem it freezes and closes on packet #3 or about 384 bits. When simply clicking the send file button you get the error-
*** Reserved LVL 7 Interrupt ***
PC = 0xfff0bc98, Vector = 0x500, SP = 0x80004c4c
Not sure what to do from here. I have tried everything.
Error you get when you boot the router:
System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(1r)XE1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

C1700 platform with 32768 Kbytes of main memory
loadprog: bad file magic number: 0x0
boot: cannot load "flash:"
I am trying to upload a new iso to the router. I honistly do not even see an ios on the router right now.
It all started when I got the router in the mail and I had to preform pw recover on it, i followed the cisco webpage to do so and some how when i reloaded it, it boots to rommon with thoes errors.
When you preformed the password recovery did you set it to boot back from the Flash?
Also when you say a new ISO to the router did you redownload it and try again?
I set the configuration to 0x2102. I have not tried that but none the less the file should transfer right? The file does not even transfer at the moment. Any idea what that (*** Reserved LVL 7 Interrupt *** PC = 0xfff0bc98, Vector = 0x500, SP = 0x80004c4c) error is?
I believe that it automaticaly did that each time when I tried running Xmodem.
"WARNING: All existing data in bootflash will be lost!
Invoke this application only for disaster recovery.
Do you wish to continue? y/n [n]: y"
I would try the following:
- Use a different client terminal that supports xmodem file transfers such as Hyperterminal.
- Try a lower baud rate, ie 57600.
- Try another console cable.
Please let me know if it still doesn't work after trying these items - Thanks!
Well I got a cross over cable and now my computer shows signal. I can not nor never could get tftp to work
Does not work, just times out even though it is connected directly. I used the tftp servers binded ip addresses. As the default gateway i used the 169 ip address that my computer assigned the port.
Maybe this document will help you out:
Also you do not want to use the 169.x.x.x address. That is the local link address. I would make sure that the router and the network card are on the same subnet, example 192.168.1.1/24

I really need to format the flash but remember i can only work from rommon mode. I got tftp to transer to the router but apparently the router only has 16mb of flash free (it says it has 32mb overall) The ios is 21mb. How do i clean it all out?
If you do a "dir flash:"? Is there an IOS on there already? What kinds of files are in there? You may need to clean some of them out.
All that is there is a file named "running-configg" (yes two g's)
How do I format it in rommon mode?
