We have Cisco 4503-E switch and software version is cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.01.01.SG.150-1.xo1.bin. Now i have uploaded cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.02.01.SG.150-2.SG1.bin IOS-XE software in the switch and want to boot the switch from this image.
Can anyone give me the procedure how to do it?
Go ahead and configure the below in your switch,
Once you are done with the config, save it and reboot it. This time it will get rebooted from the new image that you have pointed in the bootsystem.

This command doesn't work with this IOS-XE version.This is universal image and boots from bootflash:. It doesn't have any flash file system.
secondary-sw(config)#do sh vers

boot system bootflash:cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.02.01.SG.150-2.SG1.bin
boot system bootflash:cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.01.01.SG.150-1.XO1.bin
Basically this means that the supervisor will boot "cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.02.01.SG.150-2.SG1.bin" first. If this fails, it will boot the second file.
I dont see bootflash: option with boot system command.
primary-sw(config)#boot system ?
WORD TFTP filename or URL
flash Boot from flash memory
ftp Boot from a server via ftp
mop Boot from a Decnet MOP server
rcp Boot from a server via rcp
tftp Boot from a tftp server
Do you think this will work?
The command is:
router(config)#boot system flash:"image name"
make sure you save the change and then do show startup and you will see the entry there.
Take a look at this document which pertains to the newer image (Configuring the Cisco IOS In-Service Software Upgrade Process)
It might help.RG

I have the same problem, i'm trying to upgrade from cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.02.00.X0.150-2.XO.bin to cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.04.00.SG.151-2.SG.bin.
I have upload new image and i see with show bootvar: BOOT Variable = cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.04.00.SG.151-2.SG.bin,1; but when switch reload it boots from old image cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.02.00.X0.150-2.XO
Looks like the config register needs to be set to 2102 instead of 2101.
Actually i see the switch is configured with config-register 2101.
Did you change and probe if it works fine?
