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

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
