My BIG-IP 6900's CF disk is faulty and the system doesn't boot. I tried to reinstall the OS on that disk. I followed below link's instruction do do installation by USB media. System boots from the USB but when I want to start installing the OS on the CF disk below error appears.

 

------------------------------------------------

bash (try 'info') / > diskinit -style volumes

info: The following disks will be modified: CF1

*** WARNING:

*** All software and data on this system is about to be destroyed!

*** No bootable software images will remain.

*** You will then need to install software to the system before

*** it will again be bootable.

*** (it is always possible to boot from USB devices)

I tried to check the disk by fdisk and it was OK and I could format it by fdisk and partitioned it again without any error. I even changed the with a new one but same error appeared.
