Brocade 5300 fails to boot - bad magic number

I have now had 3 brocade 5300 san switches that have 'lost' their firmware.

after a routine power down 2 of my Brocade SAN Switches failed to boot. the switches had been power cycled before and never without a problem.

Below is the output from one of the broken switches:

Bad Magic Number

The system is coming up, please wait...

has anyone seen this before, I can't beleive this can happen three times and to no-one else.

I upgraded the switches using command line and more recently DCFM.
