I've got these 2960s and I'm trying to upgrade the code, I copy tftp the image but when I try to set the boot statement I get the following error and as a result switch never boots with the new image:

Switch(config)#boot system flash:c2960-lanbasek9-mz.122-40.SE.bin

vb:: Read-only file system

My confi-register is set to 0xF and looks like you can't set the config-register value from the config mode.

Try this:

You need to boot to rommon by holding the mode button on the switch while power cycling it.

Run these commands:


set_bs vb: rw


After you have booted, add the appropriate variables and you should be all set.

wr mem and reload to test, it should boot fine
