    Netvanta 1238 3rd gen factory default from bootstrap

    tsns007 New Member

      I'm in a pickle. I rebooted a Netvanta 1238 3rd gen and it didn't come up. Long story short, I fashioned a DB9 console connection from other posts and saw I am stuck at bootstrap. I get some characters, but still a lot of garbage. Anyway, I can't tell what image is loaded due to the console output. Is there a way to set this to default. I copied the config before the reboot.

       

      Thanks!

          Next I erased the flash and attempted to load a new image via modem...

           

          bootstrap#copy xmodem flash

          Destination filename?N123Xv2A-R11-10-1.biz

          Begin the Xmodem transfer now...

          Press CTRL+X twice to cancel

          CCC
