I wanted to upgrade the IOS image of my lab switch, (it's a lab switch, but it's important to us). the image that was running is: C2960 Software (C2960-LANBASEK9-M), Version 12.2(44)SE6, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1).
I've tried the following two images, assuming that number 2 is the official one, as I got it from Cisco website using the product part number, however, it didn't work and got me the same error message "Hardware is not supported by this firmware".
I used the xmodem to transfer the files to the flash. The switch is out of service now, so, what's missing?
Thanks, but I've used this and it didn't work, but this one worked with me "c2960-lanbasek9-mz.150-2.SE4.bin". The trick is with the "ED" and "MD" code for the switch, the image you've provided is for "MD" switches, however, mine is "ED". Thanks again,
