I bought 2 SUP2Es; they are factory installed with
BIOS: version 2.11.0
kickstart: version 6.2(2)
system: version 6.2(2)
BIOS compile time: 01/09/2013
kickstart image file is: bootflash:///n7000-s2-kickstart-npe.6.2.2.bin
kickstart compile time: 7/9/2013 20:00:00 [08/14/2013 07:51:20]
system image file is: bootflash:///n7000-s2-dk9-npe.6.2.2.bin
system compile time: 7/9/2013 20:00:00 [08/14/2013 10:27:51]
I want to upgrade the system to NX-OS
Using the following command I get an error message
switch# install all kickstart bootflash:n7000-s2-kickstart.6.2.2a.bin system bootflash:n7000-s2-dk126.96.36.199a.bin

HOW CAN I CHANGE TO NON NPE Softwareversion ?
Thanks in advance
Please try and change the boot variables, "copy run start" and reload the device. They are located toward the bottom of the configuration. Let me know if that resolves the situation.
My answer maybe to late but I still would like to share to another guy. If you would like to change from NPE to Non NPE, you just do following below step;
- change boot kickstart [bootflash:n7000-s2-kickstart-xxxx.bin]
- change boot system [bootflash:n7000-s2-dk9-xxx.bin]
- save configuration
- reload and wait
- update epld by [bootflash:n7000-epld-xxxx.img]
