    there is no way to replace a CF, and fimwarecleaninstall work only from a healthy Switch

    I don't think the CF is empty, excepted you have made some

    experiments....

    removed the card....

    connect to you PC.....

    and try to copy the FOS..... ?

    such any "copy" procedure is not working, for a simple reason the FOS need to be installed and not to be copied.

    apart on that, just see you have Brocade 200, this switch is suported only till FOS 6.2.2 and "firmwarecleaninstall" command is not supported in this release.

     

    with other word, you have to replace the switch.

    there is no way to re-install the FOS on replacement, formatted or deleted CF.

     

    as saied in my preview post, you need to replace the switch.
