I understand that you have no boot or firmware files on your switch and rebooted the switch. The switch is not able to boot without these files. You will need physical access to the switch to restore the firmware.

Download the correct firmware here

The release notes have an explanation on how to upgrade your switch from the Boot Menu, follow these steps to manually restore the firmware files. You can enter the Boot Menu during the startup of the switch via console session.

I recommend to use the TFTP or FTP method since the XModem method is fairly slow.
