If the switch is still in ROMMON, please post the complete output to the following commands: 

  1. dir flash:

Wait.  What is the exact model of this switch, is this a 9300L or a 9300/9300X?

if this install mode

you need to change boot vaiable to packages.conf

issue is resolved. Please see below

SW1#sh boot
---------------------------
Switch 1
---------------------------
Current Boot Variables:
BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf;

Boot Variables on next reload:
BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf;
Manual Boot = no
Enable Break = no
Boot Mode = DEVICE
iPXE Timeout = 0

If the switch is a 9300 then why is someone trying to force the 9300 to boot a firmware that was meant for a 9300L?
