Re: %parser-4-badcfg unexpected end of configuration file

For the parser-4-badcfg error message, this indicates that the config may be incomplete or corrupt. Do a show run and verify that the config is correct, then do a "copy run start" to save the config to NVRAM.

If you are in boot mode now...Router(boot)>, from that prompt you can try doing the copy tftp flash again. You may want to download the IOS again from cisco's web site (possibly the file got corrupted when you downloaded it).
