Catalyst 3750X Reset to Factory Default

Is there another way I can reset my Catalyst 3750X to factory default besides holding down the Mode button because it did not work for me (several times).  I pulled the switch from a stack.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks, Alfred

If you can can "log on" to the device (console?) you should be able to erase startup.

Hi Paul, I was consoled in

Hi Paul,

 

I was consoled in and I was able to run the command "write erase" and the delete "vlan.dat"  After the the reload, the switch was still showing the stacks, so I ran the "no provision command" and the reload again.  It finally worked.

 

Thanks!
