I know it's stating the obvious but you've got a problem with the flash.

On most devices these errors can occur after a failed IOS upgrade and in some extreme cases (although not normally on a modular platform) require the whole chassis to be replaced.

However, it could equally be something very simple like the flash module has become unseated. If you are confortable to do so, then remove the cover and check the seating (presence) of the flash module. If that doesn't yield any progress then try swapping the flash module with a spare and try again.

Hope that helps.
