Troubleshooting:
Once entering the firmware image name and pressing enter, the FortiGate unit MAC address appears and the '#' symbols indicate the progress of the install.
If the MAC address does not show up, check the network cable and connector to ensure they are firmly attached to the FortiGate unit.

If MAC address shows up and no '#' signs appear, check which port the network cable is in. Use the table above in step 2 to ensure it is in the right port.
Sample Console Output:
The following is an example of what the output from the console can look like. Depending on the FortiGate unit, this may vary slightly.
