The config is probably set to load from a tftp server. Go to rommon mode, change the configuration register (like you would for a password recovery), and the start-config.

I'm still learning here and I may be wrong, but I think the config-register command is used to tell the router where to look for the IOS immage, not the configuration file. Please correct me if I am.

I did some extra reading on this and I found this link here that may be helpful to you with this problem:

www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_1/config...d2002.html#wp1019218

Looks like the "no service config" command may resolve this issue.

hi,

:D Thank you very much for responding to my question. that no service config command when used from after config t worked like a charm. It has been booting normally since then. Can one 2500 image be used on another 2500?

thanks

Yep, you can use the same image as long as the routers are the same.
