Cannot reload Cisco Aironet 1200 Access Point:

My tale of woe trying to fix my Cisco Aironet 1200 Access Point:

Aironet 1200:
1: Connecting To host...Could not open connection to the host, on port 10.0.0.1: Connect failed
2. Does not respond to "ping"
3. Flash is apparently corrupted: error msg "No bootable files to boot"
4. Unable to re-flash using com connection/Hyper Terminal
5. Using com connection/Hyper Terminal get a ap: prompt.
6. Unable to get into config mod or privileged exec mode.
7. Cannot change directories
8. List of filesystems currently registered:

               flash[0]: (read-write)
              xmodem[1]: (read-only)
                null[2]: (read-write)
                tftp[5]: (read-only)
9. And finally "unable to stat flash/: permission denied"

Help, please!

Just trying to understand about point 3 - how and where did you see that error message "No bootable ..." exactly?

Amazing! All that angina and all I did was remove and re-add the ip and default router info.  Flashed without problem, accepts ping and telnet. So simple. Amazing.

What can I say? I tried something "simple" and got lucky I guess.  After changing the IP's, nobody was more surprised then me when I hit ap:boot and the update installed.
