I get below output recursively with newly installed S4 Chassis. There is only one switch module with the chassis.According to CLI output, image is loaded successfully. Then, "Waiting for chassis fabric to become operational." statement comes 20 times and reboots automatically. Any idea ??? < br>

That is an I/O module.  You need at least one fabric module in a S4 Chassis.

You are welcome.  Fabric module model numbers usually end with a F6 or F8 and are installed in slots 2 and 3 on a S4.   The S3 does not require a fabric module.
