Hi R.Rajesh,

I'd try and boot from alternative location, choosing "3" in the menu and then typing this at the > prompt, to start with:

> boot MEM()0xFFF80000

You might also want to tweak values in both OSLoader and OSRootPartition.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi Linar,

I tried in both the ways what you have given. but no success.

Any other configuration.

Any other  way to upload the FAB OS in the flash memory of the Brocade Switch.

R.Rajesh.
