S4048-ON full reset

Hi,

We have 4  of the above switches that need to be fully reset back to defaults , someone has set a console login and password combination that we have no record of.

How easy is it to do and what steps are required ?

And I think one of them is unservicable as it keeps booting into the ONIE Install OS mode then going into a loop looking for what i assume is the OS.

I think its properly broken :-(, We ran the uninstaller and it rebooted however its now looking for install files from the network, never finds them and just keeps looping.

We cannot use USB to install software, but it is on the network and has a DHCP address, or i could connect it directly to my laptop. 

Is there anyway we can recover this or is it toast ?
