IOS upgrade issue 3550

Hi

i'm trying to upgrade to c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-55.SE12.bin. The update went well but it would not boot automatically. I have tried to boot manually without secsses. The bin file is in the flash directory but I've noticed that there is no directory for it.

drwx         192

 I have tried to boot from flash but it puts out lots of short cuts that are uknown to me:  usage: boot [-n|-j] [-p] [-c] [-f] [-i] [-m] [-notnd] [-notni] [-post] [-skip_post] [-asic_post] [-reserve_mem <1-15>] [-no_esp_keepalive] [<filename>]

Please see my log below:

The system is unable to boot automatically. The BOOT

I would appriciate if someone could have a look at my log and point me in the right direction.

Many thanks in advance

Re: IOS upgrade issue 3550

Not going to work.
You are forcing a 3550 switch to load an IOS meant for a 3560.

Re: IOS upgrade issue 3550

Many thanks,

So Ive downloaded the wrong image!!

I'm looking for this image (c3550-ipbasek9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin) but I cant find it on the download page only 3560 and how do I revert back to my original IOS. I do have a back up in my TFTP folder.

thanks again.

Re: IOS upgrade issue 3550

If the firmware for the 3550 is backed up then copy it back to the switch using TFTP.

Re: IOS upgrade issue 3550

The issue I have now is that my swit is only displaying switch: promt I'm not sure how to start the TFTP in this mode and which comnds to issue.
