When one see this type of condition type a "CTRL D" to break the sequence and get to the CLI - then just do a "save" so when the switch is booted again it will come up:



System is starting...
Startup configuration file does not exist.

Started automatic configuration, press CTRL_D to break out of this and get to the CLI.

Automatic configuration attempt: 1.

Not ready for automatic configuration: no interface available.

FIX:If the user keep hitting a "CTRL D" and you can't break out of the loop -  please make sure that the desktop/laptop's comm port, console cable, or terminal emulator program is working correctly and allows you to transmit characters to the switch.
