Hello.

It looks like there's no image present in Flash. If there is one, it is probably corrupted. You need to follow the instructions from the link below in order to load new ios provided you have a valid CCO account:

Hope this helps.

I also had a problem like this. My IOS was corrupted, so I downloaded another file, and I uploaded it with TFTP.

Just type in the following in rommon mode:

IP_ADDRESS= ip_address

IP_SUBNET_MASK= ip_address

DEFAULT_GATEWAY= ip_address

TFTP_SERVER= ip_address

TFTP_FILE= filename

tftpdnld

it'll take 5-10 minutes. Unfortunately slower than global conf mode.

Regard

Adam.

Do a "dir flash:" and see if you have a valid image installed.  If not, install one with TFTP per the link provided by a previous poster.
