Command Description:

 

To return to EXEC mode from ROM monitor mode, use the continue ROM monitor command.

 

Use this command to return to EXEC mode from ROM monitor mode, to use the system image instead of reloading. On older platforms, the angle bracket (>) indicates that the router is in ROM monitor mode. On newer platforms, rommon number> is the default ROM monitor prompt. Typically, the router is in ROM monitor mode when you manually load a system image or perform diagnostic tests. Otherwise, the router will most likely never be in this mode.

Caution: While in ROM monitor mode, the Cisco IOS system software is suspended until you issue either a reset or the continue command.
