Have you tried removing the old storedimage 1st, then loading the new one?
Force/Delete this one: c2800nm-ipbase-mz.124-15.t7.bin

The load via tftp your new image in its place. Be sure to backup your config prior to removing and writing the new one just in case you run into checksum issues or something similiar.

Hope this helps.

Hi Warlock,

I have no specific configuration on the router as yet... The reason why I wanted to upgrade my IOS is to install PRI module to my router... the command to install the  PRI module
(Router(config)# card type t1 0 2 )

 is not present in the current IOS [c2800nm-ipbase-mz.124-15.t7.bin]
therefore i am upggrading my IOS...
can u tell me if upgrading is the solution for this problem

If you don't want to use asdm, you able to format flash: and after you will have enough place to tftp the new ios, if you don't have PC CF card reader!
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
I would just simply remove the old image file and copy the new one to it and load from it. Since you already stated you dont have a current config on this device, you won't be losing any information. So, in essence you have nothing to lose by deleting the old files(s).

Author

Commented:
what is asdm??
once again pardon my ignorance...
and what does it used for ??? can i format my flash? and what effect will it have on the basic function of the router?
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
Yes, you can format your flash. It wont have any effect on the router until you load the new image and boot from it.

asdm = Adaptive Security Device Manager
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
The files you see currently in your flash are for the web-based gui function.

whats the significance of boot system ... should i put

Istvan KalmarHead of IT Security Division
Top Expert 2010

Commented:
before you reload, you must verify it:

verify /md5 flash:c2800nm-adventerprisek9_ivs-mz.124-24.T1.bin

after show flash:
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
If the first file in the Flash is not the Cisco IOS Software image, but a configuration file or something else, then you need to configure a boot system statement in order to boot the specified image. Otherwise, the router will try to boot with the configuration file or the first file in the Flash; this will not work. If there is only one file in the Flash which is the Cisco IOS Software image, then this step is not necessary.
2610#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
2610(config)#no boot system
2610(config)#boot system flash c2600-i-mz.121-14.bin
2610(config)#^Z
Note: If you type the reload command, the router asks you if you want to save the configuration. You should be very cautious here. The reason is that if the router is in boot mode for instance, it is a subset of the full Cisco IOS software which is running and there is no routing functionality. Therefore, all the routing configuration is gone in the running configuration and if you save the configuration at this time, then you erase the good startup-configuration in NVRAM and replace it by the incomplete running-configuration. Save the configuration only if you are sure that you have the full configuration in the output of show run. It is NOT necessary to save the configuration to take into account the new config-register if this one has been changed previously. That is done automatically.

2610#reload
 
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: y
Building configuration...
[OK]
Proceed with reload? [confirm]y
Verify that the router is running with the proper image. After the reload is complete, the router should be running the desired Cisco IOS Software image. Use the show version command to verify.

Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
btw, use YOUR image filename in place of the example above.

Or you can check for an exact checksum by:

Router# verify /md5 filesystem:filename MD5-value

Author

Commented:
well when i gave the commands its says done and
says

verify /md5 {flash :/ IOS name )=  ccec1c8622e5.....
some code

what does that mean
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
You can obtain the MD5 value for your system image from the Software Center at Cisco.com. The most convenient way to get this value is to click on the name of the file prior to download. For example, if you select the 12.2.2T4 Release for the 3640 Platform with the Enterprise Plus Feature Set, before clicking the Download button, you can click on the file name for the image (c3640-js-mz.122-2.T4.bin) and the image information will be displayed.

Image information typically includes the Release, Description, File Size, BSD Checksum, Router Checksum, Date Published, and MD5 value for the image. You should record the MD5 value for the image prior to download. However, if you do not have the MD5 value for a previously downloaded image, you can select the same image on Cisco.com (using the same process you would use to download the image) to get the MD5 value.

T1 or E1?
Robert Sutton JrSenior Network Manager

Commented:
Have you physically installed the module into the router yer? If not, ensure the router is powered down and simply install the card into the first open WIC slot. Power the router back up and ensure your system recognizes the new card. You should be able to configure it at that point.
