good day EE,

i have been upgrading the IOS on a few Cisco 3750Gs and all was going well until I ran into two Cisco 3750Es that did not process the update properly due to an incorrect image that was uploaded. i am now at the Switch: prompt and need help with a few commands and maybe a quicker way to upload the new image.

currently i am using hyper term with xmodem to copy the image from the laptop connected via console onto the switch but it is going to take close to 6 hours, is there anyway i can do this via ethernet while in Switch: mode to speed up the process?

also, after i upload the image is it as simple as running the command:

boot flash:imagename.bin

as i have done previously on the 3750Gs or is it different on the 3750Es?

any help on this is deeply appreciated, thank you all.
