Booting into U-Boot



I have another issue to investigate and I need to get into U-Boot.


  1. Log in to your switch via the console. See the quick start guide for steps.
  2. Reboot the switch:
    cumulus@switch~:$ sudo reboot
  3. Press any key when you see the following prompt:
    Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0
    The full output from the boot sequence is in this file: reboot.txt
  4. The switch will now boot into U-Boot.
    switch-> version
    U-Boot 2013.01.01-g1f891da (Sep 23 2013 - 18:31:29)
    ONIE 1.6.5
    powerpc-linux-gcc (GCC) 4.7.2
    GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.22
