Upgrade Cisco 2950 IOS

Hello,

I would upgrade the 2950 IOS from c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-11.EA1.bin to c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA8a.bin.
Whereas it doesn't work, when I reload my switch there is my old IOS.

This is what I do:
- copy the bin file from my TFTP Server to the switch
- when I do show flash i see the both IOS
- switch(config)#boot system c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA8a.bin
- copy running-config startup-config
- reload

When I type show boot, I have c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA8a.bin (the new IOS)

When I reload I have the code below.

What can I do to upgrade my IOS correctly, where is my error

Thanks in advance to an answer to my issue

Proceed with reload? [confirm]

You need to specify the location of the file (flash):

Use this instead:

switch(config)#boot system flash:/c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA8a.bin

Reload and you should be running the new IOS.
