I upgraded the IOS for a 3560 48 port POE switch and I used the TFTP server to do this, since there wasn't enough flash memory for 2 IOSs I erased the flash and then did a copy tftp flash and successfully copied the "c3560-ipbasek9-tar.122-53.SE.tar" file to flash and now it will not boot from the new IOS?

Note: I upgraded the IOS on 2 like switches using the same IOS, but I used the Cisco Networking Assistant for upgrading them and they are working fine, I used the TFTP server on the 3rd switch and now it won't boot from the new IOS and since I erased the flash prior to the copy it won't boot all all, it goes to the switch: prompt?

Thank you,,
