First, make sure the EWA14 file copied over correclty, shows the correct file size, and is located in the root of bootflash:  Then type:

conf t
no boot system flash bootflash:cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA8.bin
end
wr mem

Then type "sh bootvar" and verify that the EWA14 firmware is listed on the "BOOTLDR variable" section

You should be able to type the following to see if the correct file (EWA14) is on the switch:
dir bootflash:

As long as the line "boot system flash bootflash:cat4000-i5k91s-mz.122-25.EWA14.bin" remains in the running and startup configs and the "sh bootvar"command shows the EWA14 version in the "BOOTLDR variable" section
