Try a different tftp server.

I've had luck with the SolarWinds TFTP server and the 3Com 3CDaemon.

Doesn't TFTP in ROMMON automatically erase the flash?

"Invoke this command for disaster recovery only.
 WARNING: all existing data in all partitions on flash will be lost!
 Do you wish to continue? y/n: [n]: y"

Double check that you have enough flash to contain the image you're downloading.

And can't you set the registry to boot from the burned-in system image?

Oh, yeah.

Download a fresh copy of the image from Cisco.  (Clear your browser cache first.)
