The Cisco 3600 series (3640) is hanged during booting proccess,
the IOS is decompressed, but after some text it hanges and I even cannot go to user exec.
I try the ROMmon and bypassing the config setting,
but the result is still the same.
it seems there is no error message:
Smart Init is enabled
smart init is sizing iomem

0000D8 0X00178610 Dual Fast Ethernet Combo Port Module, 2 WAN
0X000F3BB0 public buffer pools
0X00211000 public particle pools
If any of the above Memory Requirements are
"UNKNOWN", you may be using an unsupported
configuration or there is a software problem and
system operation may be compromised.

tnx in advanced.
Currently I'm experiencing the same issue with Cisco WS-C4948-S
I see the boot messages, also I can enter in rommon mode, but in the end it gets stuck at line
"Image text-base: 0x1000000, data-base: ..... "
I tried many ways to boot it, but with no luck.
s.kazemi, Which ethernet module did you removed ?
as I know the WS-C4948-S is catalyst switch, isn't it?
I'm afraid there is no module to remove on your device.
however please double check and see is there any module, fibre convertor you can remove or not.
my device (router 3640) has got one ethernet and one serial module. firstky I remove both, then plug them one by one.
after plugin th eserial, there was no issue.
only when plug in the ethernet module it was reboot continously.
by replaceing the module the problem was solve.
