  • Connect to the switch via the console cable
  • Pull the power cable out and wait 5 sec then plug back in
  • Press the letter 'B' to break into the boot menu
  • enter 'no password'
  • enter 'boot' (or maybe 'boot system flash pri' (cannot remember)
  • after the switch boots go into config term and type 'erase startup'
  • then reload the switch with out doing a write mem

That should get you there.
