Cisco Boot Startup Configuration

Hello Experts,

Can someone please tell me how to configure the router to boot the startup config from the bootflash?

For example I copied a startup config to the bootflash called 'vanilla'. I want to be able to use that startup config in bootflash to be loaded in the router whenever the router reloads - even if I do a wr mem or copy run to startup.

I'm sure its possible but not sure how.
