    Hello,
    I tried to upgrade a VDX 6740 from 7.0.1 to 7.0.2b

    after the first reboot it won't come up anymore and five this error:

    is there a way to recover from this situation ?

    thanks

    So it now looks like you only have a single partition

    Netinstall should recover this, the procedure can be found here

    They will be removed as the switch will be restored back to factory default configuration
