update Netapp firmware from 7.1 to 7.2.4

I need help updating firmware on an R200 that's currently at 7.1.  I tried the 7.2.4 exe then did the download/reboot.  I got the "successfully copied to disks..." message, did a reboot and it booted back to 7.1 ( it also broke the gui) cli only now. I tried the download -d; update-flash; rebooted. and still at 7.1 on the os and via the version -b command I get 7.1 as primary and backup versions on the flash.

any ideas? I need to be at 7.2.4

Thanks Vee_Mod
It's on a Network Appliance (NetApp) filer. The model is an R200. It's a network storage device. The OS is DataOnTap 7.1 and Im trying to upgrade it to 7.2.4. It's basicly going to be a storage admin who can help.

Another possibility is that the upgrade process did not complete cleanly. Try the following:

Issue the command: options httpd.admin.enable off
Issue the command: software install <install_file>
Download as advised in the message after the software install process finished.
Reboot the machine.
Issue the command: options httpd.admin.enable on

Meyersd, thanks for the suggestions, turns out, I was being stupid. I still had a 7.1 firmware in the /etc/boot folder so, even though I had the 7.2.4 also, it kept choosing the 7.1 and "updating" with that. I had to delete that, then also rename the 7.2.4 to just netapp-x86 and it worked fine.
