Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Factory Reset?

I have searched the internet trying to find a way to do a factory reset on the

Catalyst 3560-CX switch

and I found NO luck.

I am consoled holding the "Mode" button down while switch boots and get to the "switch :" prompt. I type

flash_init

and all I get is this (see attached). Nothing workings. This all started when I configured a password for "line con 0" login local but no username. So, to test I logged out and now it asks me for a username. I never configured a username so I'm stuck-like-chuck.

 

How can I do a factory reset on these little switch?

dir flash:

Looks good, that should prompt you for initial setup once it has booted.

That did work! Good to go. Thanks.

Tried typing "reset" as well but failed and is still prompting for a username.
