rommon 28 > xmodem -c

Re: Problm loading IOS with xmodem on AS5350 "ERR:Image size exc

You have a couple options,

1. when the box is in rommon did you set the config register to 0x2142 then reset , this will ignore the settings in NVRAM , If you have a bogus boot statement it will ignore it , It may also load your image from bootflash.

2. If that fails you can try to get the smallest image you can find for this box like 2 or s MB on CCO then xmodem it in , once this is done you can bring the box up and clean out the flash , then load the image you want in to flash.
