There are two partitions one might have got corrupted
Check if u can boot from secondary partition
Or else you can upload new software and recover the switch

You must be able to assign IP and upload exos image.
If you have a valid contract please reach out to extreme TAC . They can take remote access and help you restore switch

Here is the procedure


1 Attach a serial cable to the console port of the switch.2 Attach the other end of the serial cable to a properly configured terminal or terminal emulator,
power cycle the switch, and press the spacebar key on the keyboard of the terminal during the
bootup process.

On Summit family switches, when you see the Bootloader banner, press the spacebar key to getinto the Bootloader application.


As soon as you see the BOOTLOADER> prompt (BlackDiamond 10808 switches or Summit family
switches) or the BootRom -> prompt (BlackDiamond X8, 8800 series switches), release the
spacebar. You can issue a series of commands to:
• View the installed images.
• Select the image to boot from.
• Load a recovery image over the management port.


a To see a list of available commands or additional information about a specific command, enter h
or type help.



The following describes some ways that you can use the Bootloader:
• Viewing images—To display a list of installed images, use the show image command.
• Selecting an image—To change the image that the switch boots from in flash memory, use
the boot {image number} command. If you specify image number, the specified image is
booted. If you do not specify an image number, the default image is booted.
3 To exit the Bootloader, use the boot command. Specifying boot runs the currently selected
ExtremeXOS image.
