In Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(4)T, MONLIB is modified to search in media for a valid Cisco IOS image. This change prevents boot failures that result when the first file read in disk or Flash is not a valid Cisco IOS image.
Without the filename argument, the first valid file in Flash memory is loaded. As of Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(4)T, the first valid image file in the partition or file system is loaded.
For command defaults, the router boots the first valid image file in the partition or file system.
