DEAD 2940?

Unanswered Question
Feb 3rd, 2007

Not really dead, but just made the mistake of erasing the flash and NVRAM. Anyways, I am fairly new to networking, and I am trying to load the IOS to the flash. How do I do that? TFTP server? What is the actual, step by step command?

I have this problem too.

Is the switch on rommmon mode now? If so, you can use the xmodem commandsets to upload the IOS through the hyperterminal. You have to be on the console of the switch for this. you can then use the command :

xmodem -c imagename 115200

where 115200 is the speed at which the upload will happen..
