Cisco PIX 515E wont reboot

Dear experts,

I was updating the IOS on the pix firewall and it stopped rebooting. Please see the snapshot from my console.

I think it erased the old image during the upgrade process and now it keeps rebooting.

I want to reset it to factory default and if someone can help me will be great.User generated image

You will have to downgrade your pix IOS or upgrade memory.

Error is -
Insufficient memory for this version of image -- Please upgrade to 64MB.

What is the process to downgrade. I only get the
monitor prompt if I press escape.

Also when I downgrade will it ask for activation key?
You can do downgrade from rommon.

I am not sure about activation key.

Pete, I did that process on the pix firewall and it took the image. Not it prompts me activation key which is my issue.

Does anyone know how to deal with this or how to get the serial number of this firewall.
