at my CLI I only have a few commands
?
Boot
cat
copy...

I have a tftp server connected, with a IOS ready to send over but when I try to xmodem all I get is jibberish

I need someone to spell out where to go from here to get the IOS back on my switch so I can configure this out.

Thanks a bunch

you put following command

flash_init

copy xmodem: flash:image_filename

When the XMODEM request appears, use the appropriate command on the terminal-emulation software to start the transfer and copy the software image into Flash memory
