Are you using the "archive /overwrite..." command? That should work for removing the image first, but maybe it removes it after the new image is loaded?

If that's not working, you need to do something dangerously fun! Since the image file is no longer used once it's loaded, you can remove it once it's booted.

1. Remove the existing image (c1200-k9w7-mx.123-8.JEA)

2. Transfer the new image to the device

3. Reboot

And now you hope and pray that the image didn't get corrupted as you switched it over. If you find yourself in ROMMON mode, try using the boot command to manually boot the file your transferred.

Hi there

I did the delete /force /overwrite command or something like that. managed to get the new file on there. However I cannot web manage the Access point,

What do I need to do here?

Oh, didn't see this post. I guess you made a new topic for it, so we can move discussion over there.

Hi Carl,

I think I may have given the same answer in another post but you need to issue the following command;

archive download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://

Change the tftp addr and ios ver to match what you have. This will overwrite the existing IOS so there will be enough space in flash.
