Remember, from last week, I told you that you need a 1GB 
compact flash drive for Junos 9 or later. This wasn't 
because Junos 9 was more than 256MB in size, but rather 
Juniper foresaw where Junos was getting chubby.

Like I mentioned, you can install Junos 10.4 on a 256MB 
compact flash drive on an M7i, but it's highly 
unrecommended. That said, it looks like your flash drive is 
smaller than 256MB yet.

Suggest buying a 1GB compact flash drive, installing that in 
the RE and trying again.

One more thing:

Don't install the "Export" version of Junos, it doesn't have 
the Crypto package, which means you'll be stuck with Telnet 
instead of SSH.
