  • S-Series
  • Firmware 8.22.02.xx or higher
  • can happen during chkdsk of the DOS file system at initialization of the blade
The chkdsk at boot time was added in to correct any DOS file system corruption as soon as it is detected (usually after a power loss while writing). 
The chkdsk is a best effort and may take several tries to completely fix the file system which may involve reset with the above crash multiple times in extreme cases.
In some cases it is not able to repair and with K/S blades will need to be RMA'ed, while TOR has the "repair" option in it's boot loader.

If the system repairs the corruption then you should be able to continue
If the system cannot repair and keeps in the boot cycle then you should RMA the switch.
