Replacing the boot media

The primary boot media stores the ONTAP boot image that the system uses when it boots. You can restore the primary boot media image by using the ONTAP image on the secondary boot media, or if necessary, by using a USB flash drive.

Before you begin

If your secondary boot media has failed or is missing the image.tgz file, you must restore the primary boot media using a USB flash drive. The drive must be formatted to FAT32 and must have the appropriate amount of storage to hold the image_xxx.tgz file.
