IOS upgrade on Cisco 2851

Unanswered Question
Dec 14th, 2007

Is there anyone runing this file c2800nm-entbasek9-mz.124-8d.bin on Cisco 2851? I tried to push this image through Cisco works and I get the following error:

Warning - SWIM1065: Minimum RAM requirement of the selected image: 256 MB .RAM available on the device ( 256 MB) May not be enough to activate the selected image.

I do have 256 MB I'm afraid to proceed further without any verification. Please let me know.


I have this problem too.

Try eliminating CiscoWorks from the equation and see if you can do it the good old way with copy tftp: flash: from the router CLI.

I'm thinking that way too but is there a way I can specify two boot files in the boot system command. I don't want to take a chance for this remote router to go in the rommon mode.

you mean enter first line

boot system flash:c2800nm-entbasek9-mz.124-8d.bin

and second line

boot system flash:c2800nm-ipbase-mz.124-3b.bin prepend

or just two line of boot system statement and second will automatically be "prepend"?

Hi Nawas,

Just configure 2 lines of "boot system" command. It will be executed in order.

boot system flash:c2800nm-entbasek9-mz.124-8d.bin

boot system flash:c2800nm-ipbase-mz.124-3b.bin
