Unanswered Question
Sep 20th, 2007

Hi Guys,

Is it recommended to have a bootflash of ver 12.3 and IOS of 12.4??!?!

secondly does anybody knows if it's possible to upgrade the size of bootflash for NPE-400/2FE?

While I've 8MB of bootflash and running 12.3 but I cant load any recent 12.4 hence all bootflashes are larger than 8MB for recent IOSes!!


I have this problem too.

Reich, Boot Image is not directly co-related to the IOS version. For 7200 you will have boot images like boot.mz, kboot.mz, mboot.mz, verify it using dir bootflash:.

The existing boot image used with 12.3 will work with 12.4 as well if you have not added any new or unsupported PA. Verify the compatibility using this link.


And yes you can store your larger boot image on a external device like you disk0: by using the command "boot bootldr disk0:.

The link given should be of help.
