I bought a WS-C2924M-XL switch from ebay but it came with IOS version 11.3. I have the bin image for IOS 12 but not sure how to upgrade my IOS. after painfully trying to set up communication btw my PC and the switch (which was due to anti virus) and manage to test the copy commands btw both works I'm not able to copy flash tftp or copy tftp flash. My bin image is c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC10.bin.
When I send this command the switch complains about a flash device not found. Does this mean I can't upgrade the switch?
The error got from the swithc is below;
Switch#copy flash tftp
%Error parsing flash (No such device)
