Hi @grenzo !

Connect to the switch using console cable, reboot the switch, enter the Extended Bootrom menu, choose option '<5> Restore to Factory Default Configuration", follow all promps and then reboot again. After the next boot the switch should load the default (empty) config.

Hmm, it looks like a Basic Boot Menu (bootrom) not the Extended one... Don't you see the option "Press Ctrl-B to enter Extended Boot menu" when switch is preparing to boot the Comware image?
