Hello Simon,you may need to load a newer boot loader code in the bootflash to be able to load the new image.You see that you hace a 12.2(4) boot loader in bootflash c7200-kboot-mz.122-4.BW try to copy in bootflash the appropriate boot loader for the new image and to set the boot loader imageHope to helpGiuseppe

I tried your suggestion with no success.I copied c7200-kboot-mz.124-18e.bin into the bootflash. This was the situation when I reloadedgw-btvoice-sto2#sh bootvarBOOT variable = disk2:c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin,1;CONFIG_FILE variable does not existBOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c7200-kboot-mz.124-18e.binConfiguration register is 0x2102Untill now I reloaded from remote but decided to reload from the console. One of the first thing displayed on the console is string is disk2:c7200-is-mz.122-15.B.binI don't know where this string is set but this must be the reason why the boot cmd's have no impact. Here is the output from the reload--------------------------gw-btvoice-sto2#reloadProceed with reload?
