I just used another post on here to copy a tar file to my Cisco 1200 Wireless Access Point using xcopy.  I have tried the reset command and I get "The system is unable to boot automatically because there are no bootable files to boot."
I've also tried the tar -xtract (filename) and I get permission denied.
I admit I am a novice and any and all help is appreciated.

This is the command I used to copy the tar file. As I said I am a novice to this.
ap: copy xmodem: flash:c1200-k9w7-tar.123-4.JA2.tar

How do I get the BIN file from the TAR when i look at the file using winzip I do not see a bin file in there?

I am a novice and did not understand some of the terminology that the expert used so he was hard to follow.
