I mistakenly deleted the only *.bin file in my PIX 525. How canI recover it?

I am able to load the image from Monitor mode to ram, but when I am not able to tftp the bin to flash. By the way, the PIX is a seconday PIX.

I cannot put ip address to none of the interfaces. I think because this is a seconday PIX or failover only PIX.

what version OS is/was installed on it?

take it offline or if it's currently a standby pix then make sure secondary addresses are defined for at least one interface on the primary. then use this interface to copy the OS up to it.

I fixed the problem. I was not able to put ip address to non of the interface not because I have seconday PIX, it is because trhe PIX was in multiple context. After I swtiched it back to single context and reboot, I can put ip address to one the interface and I tftp the flash back.

Thanks for your input anyway.
