Load the IOS with a "k9" in the filename.  For example:  cat4500es8-universalk9.SPA.03.08.02.E.152-4.E2.bin

Current IOS Version is : cat4500es8-universal.SPA.03.08.02.E.152-4.E2.bin

The filename does NOT have a "k9" in it's filename. I've provided an example of what the filename should look like if you want to enable SSH.

As Leo said, (K9) in the file name means crypto that is SSH.
