Loading new configuration from flash on 3845 router

I have a router in our lab that the Customer provided a 64MB flash with new configurations. I recovered the password on the current version. Now, that password does not work with the new flash card installed. If I recover the password a second time, do the steps change to insure that the new config copy over?  would I change the copy startup to running  step to copy flash (name of file) to startup?

BTW - I enrolled myself (out of pocket) for the CCNA Boot Camp next week!

Yes

Normally one of the password recovery steps is to save the current config (with the new password).

Password recovery isn't covered in the courseware. So unless your instructor "value adds" that topic, it won't be covered.

the password recovery is simple enough. my concern is making sure the config on the flash copy over to the NVRAM @ some point during the process....if I am on 0x2142 during the password recovery steps, when do i go back to 0x2102 to copy flash to startup config?

When you've finished setting the new password and re-enabled the interfaces.
