Re: Mc Data 1620 Can't load boot file

you need the exact FW and boot loader which is current installed and a running TFTP,

NT TFTP is attached, but you can use another TFTP

Re: Mc Data 1620 Can't load boot file

the first output you posted here, show

Boot Loader release.

so i'm assuming w/o any kind of warranty you are by fw 4.7.x

Re: Mc Data 1620 Can't load boot file

Short update!

Bootrom 1.03 was Supported for FW betwem 4.4.x and 4.7.x

At this Point, as mention in my preview Post, i would reload first the Bootprom trough TFTP, and then the FW.

Please Note, as fair as i remember here are different FW package available for the 1620 with and w/o compression, Standard and Enterprise.
