I have just receive a McData 4700 with boot problems..see below for output
Partition 1 is empty and wants LMA.EL0 to be reloaded. Partition 0 has 9.3.1 on it and that version is not available for download as far as I can tell. I am going top assume that I need to reload the same version as on Partition 0. If I select switch partitions, I get the same result.
Does anyone know if this is possible to fix and if so where to get the appropriate version and instructions?

In the past, post another user a similary error here in the community.
I 've search for that but cannot find it.
I believe, - but not sure - you need when Option 1 is selected, to Download the Firmware trough TFTP
have you trying to download the FW whit TFTP as you start with 1 ?

It looks to me like it is looking for a z-modem transfer and I did try that with a 9.9.0.bin file and it rejected the filename. I can extract the file into its components and the file I need is there but it's a 9.9.0 version and 9.3.1 is not available to download. I don't think TFTP will work as I have no ethernet at this point on the switch. Do you know where I can get 9.3.1 or do you think I should try the version closest to that?
