Cisco routers can initialize the system (boot) in four ways:
• Netboot—Routers can boot from a server using the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), the DEC Maintenance Operation Protocol (MOP), or the Remote Copy Protocol (RCP) across any of the supported media types (such as Ethernet, Token Ring, Fiber Distributed Data Interface [FDDI], High-Speed Serial Interface [HSSI], and serial lines).
• Flash memory—Routers can boot from Flash memory, a nonvolatile storage medium that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed.
• ROM—Routers can boot a system from built-in read-only memory (ROM).
• PC Flash memory card—Routers can boot from a removable Flash memory card.
