I ran the test in the getting started guide, and I successfully erased the SPI and downloaded blinky_for_AvtLX16.bit. Now when I push SW2, I see a different pattern of blinking for D1, D2, D4, and D5. But the test code is gone. Which bit or bin file restores the SPI flash to load the test code?
I found a msc file, but that seem to require a USB with flyleads or adapter to J5 with XSPI.
I saw a mention of using JTAG via USB with iMPACT. Can I use the included USB cable, or do I need a special JTAG cable?

This is available on the downloads page. Instructions for burning this file to the serial flash is in Serial Flash (SPI) Programming & Configuration using AvProg

I downloaded the Default SPI Flash Image from the Test File section of downloads and it turns out to be a .mcs file. When I try to open a Bit File to program to the SPI via AvProg, it seems to want a .bit or .bin file. I seached both the AvProg manual and the LX16 user guide for mcs and didn't find any reference.

I really apologize. I'm not sure what happened there. The default factory image is on the LX16's DRC Support and Downloads page.
I believe this link should work:
If not, try going to http://www.em.avnet.com/spartan6lx16-evl --> Support Files & Downloads --> Test File --> Default SPI Flash Image
