catalyst 3924 flash deletion

I have a 3924 that I accidentally deleted the flash on it. Since then I've tried to reinstall the ios on it and I keep getting a permission issue. I have attached the error messages down below. I just would like to know how to load my ios back on my switch. As you can tell I've used various commands but It still won't allow me to do this.

switch: dir flash

unable to stat flash/: permission denied

switch: dir

Re: catalyst 3924 flash deletion

Try typing in "dir flash:".

The following page should help you in recovering the switch from Rommon
