I am trying to update the OS from 7.2.4 to 8.0.4 but somehow I have both of them running in the flash directory. How do I update the software to the new version 8.0.4? Thank you.

    Accepted Solution

    In the pix, do a "DIR FLASH:"  just to be sure you have the images in there.  

    If you are certain the ios file is present, then you can just negate the other boot option using "no boot system flash:/pix724.bin"

    That will just leave the boot command for the 804

    Assisted Solution

    Also after verifying that you can boot from the 804 image, you can delete the 724 image so there is no confusion during boot.
