Hi,


I have just purchased and upgraded the IOS on my first 3845 router. I had some issue with installing the IOS, but managed to get the 3845 to accept the new IOS.

The router take a long time to reload and I am not sure if this is the correct operation ?

It would be appreciated if you could anyone could review the reload process and let me know if all is operating correctly (I think it is, but would like a second Opinion)?

Proceed with reload? [confirm]

A lot of the newer boxes take a long time to boot like your model , 3750's etcc and this normal, not saying it is a good feature but it is normal . That has been one of my little peaves too you would think they could find a way to make them boot faster . 8-10 minutes for a sup 720 is kind of ridiculous.
