Hi @mtchicmen,

It seems like your image is corrupted or missing. Cisco has a documentation to fix that.

Hello mtchicmenYou can try to

Hello mtchicmen

You can try to go the switch in Switch: mode.

Then in this mode try the following commands:

Switch: flash_init

Switch: load_helper

Switch: dir flash:

This command will show you that IOS is present in the flash memory or not. If IOS will be available there in the flash memory then give the boot command as below:

Switch: boot flash:<IOS file name>

If IOS will not be there in the flash memory then you have to install IOS in the switch.

If after configuring the boot command switch is not able to boot properly then there is a possibility that IOS gets corrupted and you have to install the IOS.

If you need any help in IOS installing steps then please tell me.
