          Do you have a good config saved somewhere for it? If not, hire a consultant to get it up and working.

            Below might help. NOTE: I interrupted the boot cycle to show the necessary commands to boot manually from flash, not TFTP server. Substitute the boot image filename for the "boot" command with the image thats loaded on your bootflash. If you do not have an image on your bootflash, then you will need to boot the image from a TFTP server.

            Good luck!

            Code:
