It depends on what supervisor you have , it must be at least a Sup II Plus to have ios . If it is only a sup II you cannot change it . If it is a Sup II plus it would have come with IOS . My guess is you have a 4500 chassis with a Sup II in which case you cannot upgrade it . You can do a show mod and post here and we can tell you .

Need to know what models you are talking. The only ones upgradeable would be the Cat 6500's , anything else is catos only . There are certain hardware requirements to do so also such as nvram and flash etc .....

But I have some 4506's that have IOS? Can't I upgrade my other 4500's?
