Your switch is trying to boot an image that isn't there. Perhaps you had a boot system ... statement in your running-config that pointed to EA13 image but when you deleted the running-config it fell back to the bootvar ?

Your switch is fine but i would suggest -

1) do a "sh version" and make sure the switch is using the EA13 image

2) add this to your config -

   switch(config)# boot system flash flash:/c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA13.bin

save the config and reload the switch and see if you still get the same error message.
