I changed the slot numbers in the stack of 4 - X460-24's. (vers.  Now I can't get out of stand-by mode.  I've rebooted numerous times trying to get into the bootrom.  
Most commands need to be in master mode.  
If need be, I can reset to factory defaults, however, I would probably need Master mode for that.
All help and suggestions are appreciated.
Thank you!

Did you try that?

At the login prompt, enter the following special login ID exactly as displayed here (all uppercase
letters) and press [Enter]:


The following message appears:Node reboot initiated with master-capability
turned on.
This node then sets an internal indicator that is preserved across the reboot. While restarting, the
node notices and resets this indicator, ignores the node master-capability configuration, and
becomes a master node.

I did, thanks!
I ended up taking the stack apart and was able to get into the bootrom.   Am now re-configuring the stack.
Thank you for your input!!
