Booting / Firmware Issue

Hello y'all,

I recently purchased a second hand VDX 6720-24, and have been unsuccessful in getting it to boot. I have google'd firmware, difference between Fabric OS and Network OS, should it be a zip or a tarball, use USB or TFTP... etc.

Here's an output of my console session... any advice to get this booted to the shell of network os is much appreciated:

The system is coming up, please wait...
