We have a Catalyst 2900XL we need to configure, which has no IOS at all, the flash directory is completely empty.
XModem does not work, the switch does not respond to an Xmodem command, even when using hyperterminal.
We have followed all of the recommendations in "Recovery From Corrupt or Missing Software Image on Cisco Catalyst 2900XL and 3500XL Series Switches" to no avail. The documentation assumes that there is a boot file, whereas with our switch on bootup the message, "No boot File present" appears, which seems to be crucial for accepting any commands.
It would have been helpful if you put exact error messages you got, but anyway if you are getting the prompt "Switch:" in ROMMON, I think the only option to upload an IOS image is through XMODEM command. If XMODEM is not working, then you could also try with different baud rates.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
