I have problem when I reloaded my Nexus 7000. I tried to enter ROM monitor to init my system by entering Control-C after reloading. I have done this before twice and it went smooth, but when i did it for the third time the boot process stucked on "Status 90: Loading Boot Loader". I have attached the screenshot below.
Is it because my BIOS corrupted?
FYI before I tried to reload the system, iI tried to upgrade my NX-OS from 6.1.1 to 6.1.2 with ISSU but it failed and there was message like this:
“un,able to install log files”
After saw this message, I checked my currently running NX-OS version and it was still 6.1.1 so I assumed that the cuurently running image and kick start didn't got replaced already. After that, I relaoded my system and the problem began. FYI, I have 2 version of image system files and kick start image file (6.1.1 and 6.1.2) in my bootflash and 1 version (6.1.2) of system image and kick start on my slot0.
I try to give all information about my system to ease the troubleshooting. I hope you people can help me in this matter.
thanks in advance.
Yup, I have read that documentation and I arrive in a conclusion that my BIOS is corrupted, but I am not pretty sure about that. The other reason why I suspect my BIOS is corrupted because before reloading the system, I tried to upgrade my system twice (as i mentioned in my post above), and from what I know, upgrading the NX-OS also means upgrading the BIOS.

But since I failed upgrading my system, I think my BIOS shouldn't got changed. FYI I got message which notify me that the system failed to extract my new image system and my new kick start image when upgrading process so I assumed that the upgrading system stop at that early stage and didn't touch my BIOS at all. What is your opinion?
One more thing, do you know the function of reset button in Supervisor module? FYI I use SUP-1. Is it for reseting the system to factory default? I can't find any documentation about that reset button.
Thanks for replying.
I solved the problem by pulling off the CMOS battery of the supervisor module and wait up to 1 minute before putting it back again in its socket.
I hope that will help you.
