I have a problem with one of our Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch. It was functional but we cut the power off for the whole rack and this one didn't boot. Both uplink ports shine amber and SYST led is blinking green. This does not change the whole time.
Through console I can access the switch only in some pre-boot mode, but I can't access the flash:

Interrupt within 5 seconds to abort boot process.
Boot process failed...
I already tried flash_init and load_helper commands, but no luck..
So I guess the switch does not have image from which to boot? Maybe the flash memory is corrupted? Is here still any way how to fix this?
