I'd like to try a factory reset and have tried the procedure on the following page;

But maybe I misunderstood, no matter how many times I turn the power off and then back on, 
I can't enter the normal CLI and it says "Aboot #".

How can I get the normal CLI to appear again? 
If there is any other information I should provide, please let me know. 
And also if there is already have a similar question, please guide it there.

Could you describe the steps performed so far?

If the switch is in Aboot, I'd suggest checking if there is a valid EOS image that could be used for the switch to boot. You can check by:

ls -lah /mnt/flash

optionally filtering by 'EOS'

ls -lah /mnt/flash | grep EOS

if yes, you can use the boot command to start the process manually:

boot /mnt/flash/EOS-4.xx.x

This should start the boot process. Optionally you can also check the md5 hash to confirm the image is valid.

The article below may be a useful reference performing these steps:

To boot in EOS you need to make sure you have a valid EOS image in flash

From Aboot, use "ls" to check the files in flash.  The command is "ls /mnt/flash/"

EOS images have ".swi" extension

you can boot this image with the "boot" command.  The command is "boot /mnt/flash/xxxx.swi"

See below example on a vEOS device

If you do not have a valid EOS image, you will need to copy one on flash and boot it.

Thank you
