Hi all;

I have Cisco 7206VXR, i want upgrade my IOS from c7200-p-mz.122-18.S.bin to IOS c7200-ik9o3s-mz.123-10a.bin
and the bootflash: c7200-kboot-mz.122-15.B.bin also I have c7200-boot-mz.120-13.S
I put the new version on disk2: but when I reload the router I got these messages:

monitor: command "boot" aborted due to exception
boot: cannot determine first file name on device "slot0:"


 then it goes to Rommon,, and i boot from there to the specified image...

plz advise what's needed to accomplish this

Thanks

In the config, you probably have a boot string. You need to change it to match the new images and locations. Do this by typing "no" followed by the current command and then adding the new one.

The slots are normally disk0: and disk1: I don't think there's a disk2:

What is the current boot string? What string do you use to boot from rommon?

You mentioned the bootldr image. Is that string correct or missing?

string you used:
boot system flash disk2:c7200-ik9o3s-mz.122-40a.bin
image on flash:
c7200-ik9o3s-mz.123-10a.bin

Notice anything wrong? I don't see the image you're trying to boot from on disk2:

Can you type "show boot" it works on some devices and not others. If it works, post the output. Also post the full output of show version.

How did you get to the bootldr image (your prompt ends in "boot"). Did it boot there on it's own or did you boot there?
