An intern was playing with a switch, a FastIron FCX-624, and when trying to clear the config, accidentally deleted the Primary and Secondary flash.
If I console to the switch, I get a console that says "Monitor>" with a limited command set. Thus far, I have been unable to find a way to get re-install the flash. I do have a copy of the flash, but I can't communicate with the switch. The limited option I have does have an IP option, but even when i configure those settings, the switch can not communicate with anything. Any suggestions?

You should be able to load flash via TFTP. I don't have the commands right in front of me, but the easiest thing is to load solarwinds tftp server on a workstation that's in the same subnet as the switch. Assign an ip and tell the switch to boot from TFTP. Once you do that, then you should be able to get the switch online and copy the code into the flash. I'm not sure if your at the right prompt at "Monitor>", there should be a point on boot that you press 'b' to get to the boot monitor.
