Help with switch SAN storageworks 4/32

Greetings:
I bought a Swith SAN for a ridiculous price but there is a problem in its startup, I would be very grateful if someone could inform me of which way to go to put it, if possible, in operation.
I copy here the message that the console tells me.

Linux/PPC load:
BootROM command line: quiet
Uncompressing Linux...done.
Now booting the kernel
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0000:00:00.0
Installing Linux 2.6 Kernel
Attempting to find a root file system on hda1...
mount: Mounting /dev/hda1 on /mnt failed: No such device or address
Failed to mount hda1 as root!
Attempting to find a root file system on hda2...
mount: Mounting /dev/hda2 on /mnt failed: No such device or address
Failed to mount hda2 as root!
Failed to mount a root file system!
Both boot devices are inconsistent. You can run sbin/repairfs.sh to boot up the
system. After the system is booted up, please run firmwaredownload to load the a
ppropriate version of firmware

Thanks in advance.

Greetings:
Thank you very much for your help. It seems that all the information is in a card, (I have uploaded the images to Google), and that it is this that is missing. Inside the Switch is the only storage element that is detected.
I have added the complete information given by the console access, would you be so kind to tell me, if anything else can be deduced with all that information.
Very grateful in advance.

Re: Help with switch SAN storageworks 4/32

Hello again:


It finally became clear that the CF is wrong and I want to ask a question.


Would it be possible to copy the CF of an IBM 2005 B32 SAN Switch in perfect condition to a new CF and with it make the Storage works 4/32 work?

Both the IBM 2005 B32 and SW 4/32 are Brocade 4100.

if possible ... what would be the best way to achieve it.

Thanks in advance.
