Use "set boot".
Something like ap: set BOOT flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1

The AP should only have one image in flash at a time.  If the AP is autonomous it will have a folder with the HTML files, etc, too.

Delete the image that you don't want to boot from.

The set boot command is only really useful to help you if you brick the AP.

Quick question... is the AP booting the correct version of IOS?  If so, just leave it as-is - it won't cause a problem.

If you want to enter in a folder you will use "cd" command. Use "delete" for delete a file. Dir for discovering.
