Catalyst 3500XL Switch - Hanging?

I reloaded the stock configuration onto my Cisco Catalyst 3500XL switch (WS-C3524-XL-EN), through the document titled "Recovering Catalyst Fixed Configuration Switches from a Corrupted or Missing Image". Having successfully transferred the image using, and issued the boot flash:c3500xl-120-5-wc15.bin command, the switch reports

Loading "flash:c3500xl-120-5-wc15.bin"... ###

File "flash:c3500xl-120-5-wc15.bin" uncompressed and installed, entry point: 0x3000

executing...

It's been hanging at executing for 1h 01m 33s. How long is this supposed to take?

Shouldn't stay at that point more 30-60 seconds , you have something else going on .

Any potential suggestions for a 'next step'?

Why did you rename the image file in flash memory?

Re: Catalyst 3500XL Switch - Hanging?

The initial xmodem upload failed, with the switch telling me that the filename provided was too long (max length 45 characters). When I recounted, it wasn't, but I figured that the switch knew more than I did at that point, so I shortened the filename. I did attempt a second time with the original image name, and the upload failed again.
