  2. You could enter the command:

    "wr erase"
    and then do a reload

  4. Hi,

    so why don´t you connect via console cable ? ;-)
    There´s no other way to be at least connected to the switch with
    a console cable.
    Turn the switch off (Power cable)
    Turn it on while pressing for at least 5-10 secs the mode button.
    now a dialog should appear. now you have accesss to the file system and
    can delete the config file.

    There is no way to break into a Cisco Router/Switch without the "Blue"
    (older ones are black) cable.

    Hold in the mode button for 10 seconds and you will erase the config.
