Cisco IOS Software - Cisco 3560 catalyst switch

I was trying to 'copy tftp flash' to a switch, after deleting the original IOS, due to reasons, that were beyond my control, I was unable to complete the task, and without thinking, I switched the switch off!! Bad move!! How can I sort this out: Error loading Flash......

The system is unable to boot automatically. The BOOT environment variable needs to be set to a bootable image.

TIA

Yeah you should done the speedup procedure where you set the console speed to 115200, it makes a huge difference , probably would take 15 minutes if you did .

I did read that after I started the process, and was too scared to quit while I was ahead!! Needless to say it all worked, the switch has resumed 'normality' and I'm a very happy teddy :-D

Thank you very much!
