After you change the config

After you change the config-register value, please don't forget to save the config.

Configuration register is

Configuration register is 0x2101

Forget it.  I know why.  

Configuration register is set to 0x2101.  This is the DEFAULT value of a supervisor card fresh from the factory.  The last octet "1" means disregard boot variable string and boot the first IOS found in the bootflash.   

Change the configuration register to 0x2102 and you should be fine.

Before restart is necessary to put the command :

no boot system flash bootflash:cat4500e-ipbasek9-mz.122-53.SG.bin(old IOS)

Your boot variable stable should be the following: 

 

boot system flash bootflash:NEW_IOS.bin

boot system flash bootflash:OLD_IOS.bin

 

This will ensure that your chassis will recover if the new IOS doesn't work.

Configuration register is 0x2102 and reload the switch, switch will boot with the new IOS
