the flash could be missing from the boot list.
use the following cmd to check,
root at slippery% sysctl machdep.bootdevs

machdep.bootdevs: pcmcia-flash,compact-flash,disk,lan

If it does not, issue the following command (M5, M10, M20, M160): 

root at slippery% sysctl -w

After hitting 'enter,' you should see: 

machdep.bootdevs: pcmcia-flash,compact-flash,disk,lan 

To verify it has been entered in sysctl do the following: 

root at router% sysctl -a | grep bootdev

Then, reboot the router.
