One quick question.
Let's say we boot 2 images on the boot system like the following
vpnb# sh run boot
boot system disk0:/asa943-smp-k8.bin
boot system disk0:/asa941-smp-k8.bin
If the first image fails/or if it's corrupted while booting the device, will the ASA router pick the second image and boot correctly?

Thanks alot for the quick reply.
Is there anyway we can to make sure that the image I set on top (on boot priority) is not corrupted and all good?
Like a hash check?
vpnb# show disk0: all | inc Feb 26
104 84805632 Feb 26 2020 16:20:30 asa963-1-smp-k8.bin
105 26709020 Feb 26 2020 16:23:56 asdm-771.bin
I want to upgrade to "asa963-1-smp-k8.bin" which is currently sitting on disk0. But I just want to have a plan B before I set this new image as a boot image and perform a reload.
Yes there is, use the "verify /md5" and "verify /sha-512" commands to verify that the MD5/SHA hash is valid. Use this document for further reference.
