These instructions do not work with the 9124, I had already tried this. When you reboot the 9124 and insert a break command the menu options are not the same as the large director level switches. Any other instruction would be much appreciated.
I have done it several times on the 9124 and it's the same procedure.
You need to get to the switch(boot)# prompt to reset password. Press ctrl+] exactly when you see "Loading system software". The message "Switching to runlevel: 1" indicates you are entering switch(boot)# prompt.

No, you will not lose you switch configuration. You're performing a "conversational boot". Basically, you're walking the switch through what images to load.

Hello, I know this is an old post.. I just retired a DR Site and need to factory reset 2 mds 9124 standalone switches. I tried the link , but doing the following, after load bootflash in returns to the switch (boot)# and will not let me copy run to startup?
Issue theloadcommand in order to load the SAN-OS software image. This is the image name that was noted as part of step 3.
In this example, san-ios.img is the name of the software. Most likely, the format looks like m9500-sf1ek9-mz-2.1.2b.bin.
