How to Load Cisco IOS on a Catalyst 3750 48port Switch

I pulled this switch off the shelf and wanted to use it but after consoling in realized their is no IOS installed on the flash.  So I started a TFTP server on the laptop, consoled into the switch and mapped it to the IOS I downloaded from www.cisco.com ( c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.150-2.SE.bin ) I typed in the command:
switch:copy tftp flash
   and it replied with :
tftp: no such device

How do I load the IOS onto this switch?

It doesn't have an IOS intalled right now so I don't get a priveleged prompt, just

switch:

However the link that you posted said to go into xmodem in hyper terminal and send it through there and had it all step by step.   Here they are:

copy xmodem:c3750-ipservicesk9-mz150-2.se.bin
then go to hyperterminal, transfer and send the file with xmodem

It is sending the file to the switch right now.  Great link lets see what happens.

I tried to access the rommon mode but was not able to.  I was not able to find the confreg or config register command in either mode, ios/boot loader.  The switch is taking a very long time to boot after reloading I believe it is because I can not change the config register to 0X2102.
