Use "set boot".
Something like ap: set BOOT flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1

Quick question... is the AP booting the correct version of IOS?  If so, just leave it as-is - it won't cause a problem.

I am just exploring AP since I am new to it. So it won't cause any problems. Thank you
