The boot media stores a primary and secondary set of system (boot image) files that the system uses when it boots. Depending on your network configuration, you can perform either a nondisruptive or disruptive replacement.
You must have a USB flash drive, formatted to FAT32, with the appropriate amount of storage to hold the
You also must copy the
