You can't upgrade a PIX 501 to version 7.x...you're out of luck...doesn't have the memory requirements and cannot be upgraded to support the 7.x requirements.

Sorry...you have to have a PIX 515 or better to upgrade to 7.x...:(

Also make sure you have enough memory that is required per the table on this page. If not, you'll need to buy additional memory chips

Thanks for promptly choosing an accepted answer but it would help if you showed a little more etiquette by also acknowledging others who helped point you in the right direction either by splitting points or otherwise
