I am upgrading my corporate PIX 515 to 7.2(4)9 to address some vulnerabilities. I have the new image downloaded into my root directory of the TFTP server on my laptop. Once I try to copy the image over to the PIX I get the following error:

WARNING: TFTP download incomplete
Error reading tftp://10.0.0.250/pix724-9.bin (unspecified error)

I am using the "copy tftp flash" command for my upgrade

What tftp server are you using? I had this issue before using TFTPD and this happend quite frequently. Switch to Solarwinds TFTP (Free) and see what happens.

Yes, the problem is more than likely that your flash is too small.
Cheers!
