Re: switch not able go into the IOS

You could try a new image , its possible the current image has become corrupted. Also check the imagename syntax with a "dir flash: command and copy and paste that image name into the boot statement so that you know it correct. Check that the cofig register is 0x2102 also.

Re: switch not able go into the IOS

try re-formating the flash maybe it has been corrupted and downloading an IOS from cisco or another 3550 switch .

Hi Gilbert ,

Checkout the below links...

Configuration Register Changes and the Set of Boot Statements

Unlike some other Catalyst switches, there is no config-register command on the 3550. You cannot change the configuration register value from the default.

The 3550 automatically searches for a valid software image from which to boot. The search occurs even if you do not set a boot system statement. Set the boot statement anyway, as a precaution. The command to set a boot system statement is boot system flash: file_name .

You can specify multiple images in the boot statement if you separate the image names with a semicolon. The command is boot system flash: file1;file2 .

If you use a CMS image on the 3550, the Cisco IOS image (.bin file) extraction creates a directory for the image alone. The boot system command becomes boot system flash: directory/file_name .

The Software Upgrade Procedure for the 3550 Series Switches section of this document covers in detail the use of the boot system command.
