Switch 3524 not loading ios into system

I have a 3524 switch that when it reloads it can't find the ios file. (The file it looks for is 1 alpha character different than the actual name of the ios file)

Is there a way to force it to load the ios file when I reboot it? If so what are the steps I need to do this?

Thanks!

You can set using boot statement. Here is an example

3500#dir

Directory of flash:/

2 -rwx 1810753 Mar 01 1993 19:07:14 c3500xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC13.bin

3 -rwx 796 Mar 01 1993 01:56:37 vlan.dat

5 -rwx 1280 Mar 01 1993 02:00:25 config.text

6 -rwx 43 May 03 1993 01:39:27 env_vars

3612672 bytes total (1797632 bytes free)

3500#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

3500(config)#boot system flash:c3500xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC13.bin

3500(config)#end

3500#wr mee
