Cisco CVPN 3005 boot help needed

By cdavidson ·
My Cisco CVPN3005 died and won't reboot. When I connect a console and power up I see:

Boot-ROM Initializing...
Boot configured 128Mb of RAM.

No IDE devices found...

...Boot-ROM Found No IDE Devices..!
WARNING - If this message is seen then either an IDE device
was not found or a valid main image could not be loaded!
Boot code complete...

I popped out the CF flash card and attached it to my PC to inspect it. Checking it, I see a folder named ?CERTS? and three files: ?CONFIG?, ?CONFIG.BAK? and ?SAVELOG.TXT. What I don?t see is any binary load image. SO ? I downloaded a 3005 binary from Cisco and dropped it on the CF card, but no luck booting. Of course I don?t know what name it is looking for, so it?s not surprising that it still won?t load.

Is anybody familiar with how to break into the BIOS or what I can do to resurrect this device?

I read the manual (well a little of it).

Sorry i can not help out with this one.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

This is an older unit and not under a support contract, otherwise I would just call Cisco.

I need to know what is supposed to be on the flash drive or better yet get a copy of somebody else's files to get this going again.
