Operations in Boot Mode

To access Boot mode:

  1. Reload the system from Privileged Exec mode:
    host1#reload WARNING: Execution of this command will cause the system to reboot.Proceed with reload? [confirm]Reload operation commencing, please wait...7
  2. Press the mb key sequence (case-insensitive) during the countdown that is displayed immediately after the BPOST tests are bypassed. This puts the CLI in Boot mode.
    :boot##

    If you do not press the mb key sequence before the countdown timer expires, the reloading process continues and returns the CLI to the normal User Exec mode.
