Re: silkworm 7500 will not boot

update to the issue, while in console and it prompts me to press "escape" to enter boot interface

yeah it doesn't respond to that at all, even when i tried binding a different key to the escape button, or use a different computer or terminal program. any ideas how to load the cf card from a windows machine or is this dead?

Re: silkworm 7500 will not boot

there is no way to reload FOS in a CF, excepted with a recovery Image and some other tools, such tools are available from Brocade Support only under certain very Critical circumstance and only with a valid maintenance Contract

-windows is unable to handle the partition's Present on CF or recovery then.

-we discussed such problem in the past here in the Community, many topic are available.

Hints: Try to boot in root from a second partition with -s, if you are familiarly with Linux, here are diverse command to restart/reload the partition.

have a fun.
