Motorola APEX 1500 "Failed to load GigE boot code" on bootup

Motorola APEX 1500 "Failed to load GigE boot code" on bootup

I have an APEX 1500 that on bootup I am seeing the following error "***FAILURE - Failed to load GigE boot code." which is then followed by "***FAILURE - Hardware Initialization Failed in 54 seconds" then "***FAILURE - APEX1500 Configuration and Initialization in 61 seconds" I can get into the gui of the unit, and the unit is not showing the QAMs at all. I compared the settings of another unit that is working, besides that QAMs not showing up the settings looks fine. If anyone could help me with these errors or perhaps know what might have caused this that would be wonderful.
See below for the error and the output afterwords.
