Install mode ISR1K 16.9 - remote upgrade

Hi I decided to upgrade my ISR 1100 to latest 16.9.3. Please help how to enable install/packages mode


I followed the guide, but there is a ridiculous step which shows to boot to rommon and select packages

I did 

request platform software package expand file bootflash:isr1K.bin to bootflash:mydir


but the next steps show reload to rommon and boot the packages.

rommon 1 > boot bootflash:mydir/packages.conf



Is there a way how to upgrade remotely the ISR1K to install mode?

Something like in past with 3850 "software install" - this command expanded the file and also set correct path to packages.conf


Thank you

When it comes to switches, Install Mode is better.
But when talking about routers, I just use Bundle Mode.
