To download the IOS, you may need to have cisco partner reseller account or direct cisco partner only have the authority to download the IOS.

Hi all.

I regularly buy new Cisco hardware but I need to download iOS software. Is it possible to download with a Serial Number or something which is in the box ?

No..not with the serial number but if you bought a Support contract  with these devices then you can link these contracts in your Cisco  profile. Based on the contract, your user id will get the required  authorisation to access the IOS download page

Or another way is to use the IOS file from the Cisco  Routers bought (if they are of the same platform which GNS support) and  transfer it to the PC using TFTP

Hope it helps
