Console upload using tftp

Hi Experts,

I have a HP Switch and want to upgrade OS to flash.  Currently the SW is not on network.  I want to use my W7 laptop to connect to the console of SW and do tftp uploading via serial-USB cable.  

During upload setting or command line, how can we point or specify the tftp server? Normally we use IP address of tftp server.

I am using tftpd64.  What other tftp server do you suggest?

Thanks

The switch comes with USB port.  I am trying to do it with USB, but when I load the OS with copy usb flash K_XX_XXXX, I got "Cannot open dest in Ram error" error.  

Any suggestions?

Thanks
It sounds like you are trying to load an image that is too large for the flash.  Have you already removed the old image?
Isn't it able to overwrite the old one?  How do we remove the old one from the flash?  Thanks
It would only overwrite the old one if they are named the same.  You would get some kind of prompt about that.

You need to use the delete command, not sure what that is on HP, but should be something like delete flash:filename.
Thank you very much
