loader console not working to remove IT policy...HELP!

I'm going through the info listed in RIM's KB14202 "How to remove an IT policy from a blackberry smartphone".  I'm on windows 7 64 bit, so I have followed the instructions, including opening as administrator.  After typing in the "loader.exe /resettofactory", the loader console window appears and a white cursor flashes for about 30 seconds or so, but nothing happens.


What am I doing wrong?  I do not have a sim card in it...is that the problem?
