So I went to upgrade a switch IOS for a Cisco 3750G and by accident I put the wrong IOS on it. It didn't have enough space to install the new(wrong) IOS on it alongside the old one so I deleted the tar file of the original IOS. After a restart it wouldn't boot off of the new IOS since it was incorrect.
I went into the switch: mode by holding the "mode" button on the front and tried to do a flash_init to initialize the flash. I then encountered a couple of errors
flashfs: shadow_verify: mending data @ 0x5a193a4.
flashfs: error initializing the root directory.
...done Initializing Flash.
List of filesystems currently registered:
I googled the errors and came up with nothing so I thought I would give you guys a shout and see if anyone had any ideas to try.

Then the flash initialized just fine and the switch accepted the Xmodem transfer.
Thank you for the help!
