I have a new Cisco C4507R-E and am running two WS-X4515 Supervisor IV cards. when I connect to the console and boot, I receive the error "Unsupported Chassis Type 65535, system can not boot." I believe it is IOS version 12.2(22). I then entered ROMMON mode and set up a TFTP server on my PC. I set up to boot from TFTP to IOS version 12.2(37)SG1, which came on CD with the rest of the equipment. The OS loads from TFTP but gives me a similar error "Unsupported Chassis Type 5...." I've tried booting connected to both Supervisor cards and I also tried removing one of the cards to avoid potential conflicts. I don't really know where to go from here.
