RE: problem in nortel router passport 2430

Sounds like the flash is corrupted. If you have another 2430 you could try either of the following;

use another running 2430 to reformat the flash from the faulty one to see if it resolves the problem. You will need to have a copy of the software and config somewhere else as they will be erased from the faulty flash.

Use the flash from another 2430 to boot the faulty 2430 then re-insert the faulty flash to format. This will prove that it is the flash that was the issue.
