    Over the past few days, some players have encountered an error code with an unspecified Slot0 error. This issue can occur due to a number of factors. Let’s discuss this below.

    Main Problem

    The message %Error formatting slot0 (flash error algorithm not found) is simply received when the formatting slot0 keep on control is issued. This is because the expensive Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) application is called on disk0 and not always on slot0. If the file is larger than 20MB due to flash, it is considered your own hard drive and is not mentioned as this location.


    Enter the format disk0: command along with the other commands from the format slot0 command.

    Hi, I’m trying to formatenter Slot0 of the full Cisco 7200 router and everything says:

    “Location formatting error 0: (Unknown error)”

    I have the same problem, although I do copy the TFTP flash.
    Please help me.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you have newer builds, you can enable an expensive Intel Type 2 hard drive.
    This is not the same as the Straight Line Type 1 used by many routers.
    Both seem to be supported.< /p >

    Try “sh disk0” or “dir disk0:/” to see if you have such a large disk.
    If so, use disk0 instead of slot0. Flash:slot0:ou can only be used by peer devices
