mANTBox 2

I recently picked two new mANTBox devices.  Neither will load the rb.elf file.  Each time I try I get a message stating it is not the correct file?Are there additional procedures?  What ever am I doing wrong.    Thanks,

Huh...

Are you following the instructions in Mikrotik_First_Install_Checklist.pdf?

Thanks Andre...  Yes, I have done quite a few devices but I need to review the process each time to be sure and refresh my memory.  I am going to look at the laptop as it seems to be doing some strange things.  My issue could be there.  Meanwhile, I'll again review the process instructions.  The MikroTik devices have not been a problem before.

mANTBox 2 12S

Hi Chrissy,
These are mANTBox 2 12S devices per the box label.  I stall can't get them to load the rb.elf.  I get a message that it isn't a compatible file.  I have checked that I have to complete file and it is from the stable release not the current nightly.  

Thanks,

Jim

I tried replying to your direct email, but it just bounced back. If you send me a good email address, I can send you the ELF I've had good luck with for the initial boot.... The version of that one shouldn't matter too much, it's more of giving an interface to load the sysupgrade bin...

Indeed, it is necessary.  Shut it off.
