My co-worker just deleted the image files on our 3560 switch "Delete Flash". How can we reinstall???

I have this problem too.

Hi,

you can f.e. copy a suitable IOS file to flash from a TFTP server.

Have a look at "Working with the Cisco IOS File System, Configuration Files, and Software Images"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5528/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00802b7be7.html#wp1017927

You will get detailed instructions how to load an IOS into a 3560 Catalyst.

Yes, I understand this portion. I'm have issues actually getting the file imported into the switch. Since we lost the image we get the "Switch:" prompt..

Oh, I see.

There is the option to load an IOS through Xmodem (console port). It takes time (9600 bps!), but finally you should get there.

Follow the instructions given at "Recovering from Corrupted Software By Using the Xmodem Protocol"

Hope this helps!

Hi

You need to copy the valid ios (.bin) file back onto your flash using copy tftp flash command which can help bring your ios back onto your flash .

Also do revert back whether its in boot mode or in normal switch prompt ?

Hi,

one additional info: f.e. Hyperterminal will allow you to use xmodem as described above.

Select file transfer from the menu, send file, and select xmodem from the dropdown menu as well as the file on your harddisk.
