Hi,

First try this:

config t

no boot system

then try this:

boot system flash:c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.122-58.SE1.bin

make sure that this is the image you want to boot from.

also make sure you see this image nane in the config

then reboot

Boot system is different from System image file

Hi,

Router is always booting from the first found valid IOS image (lowest order number).

To be able to run from a new IOS image, two possibilities.

1) use the boot system flash command to tell the router to use the right IOS image. Be sure that there is no other similar command.

2) delete the old image. I don't like to do this. You may before upload the image to your TFTP server first to be able to reinstall later on if needed.

Hope this will help.

Re: Boot system is different from System image file

Hey man,

That is why i am asking,

1. If you see next 2 rows, you can find that new image is hard coded and boot is already directed to that.

" sw#sh boot sys

flash:c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.122-58.SE1.bin "

2. On below rows i can see that old image file has "2" priority or what hell is that no idea, and new image is "462", i am jealous on that coz of the error. So how do i change new one lower than that old image?!

sw#sh flash

3. I don't wanna delete old image, because this switch is placing in my remote site so i don't wanna take any risk on it. Someone told me that hard code image from ROMMON , even that i can't do it! i can access only telnet.

Can you post running config of the switch ?

Also when you boot what do you see ie. does it just boot straight from old image ?

Hi,

If you have correctly configured the boot  statements......... i guess it may be the case that your new IOS might  be corrupted., hence eventhough if u have configured boot statement to  boot with higher version image its falling back to old ios.

Try verifying the md5 hash value of your new image

command "verify /md5 flash:c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.122-58.SE1.bin"

the hash value should match with the one is cisco site.

Can you pls provide answer to what Jon Marshall has asked for.

Do u have access to see console messages remotely during reboot?
