Can't xmodem and tftp on cisco 4500

Hi there,

I done some flash upgrades on my cisco router 4500 series.Since it cannot boot up eventhough go through several step or procedures on password recovery it still return to rommon. here is the output:

System Bootstrap, Version 5.1(1) [daveu 1], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) Copyright (c) 1994 by cisco Systems, Inc.

C4500 processor with 8192 Kbytes of main memory

device does not contain a valid magic number

boot: cannot open "bootflash:"

boot: cannot determine first file name on device "bootflash:"

Tried to use xmodem for this kind of disaster but the command seems to be no available...any step by step link to recover the problem?
