I get this error from a 7201 durring the POST of the router boot. QOS is applied to the WAN interface and I see no other errors in the router.
Are you seeing this message listed above the Boot Messages.
% QOS Policy-maps configuration is not
%SYS-6-BOOT_MESSAGES: Messages above this line are from the boot loader.
If the Messages appear before
"SYS-6-BOOT_MESSAGES: Messages above this line are from the boot loader."
They are generated by the boot image when it is parsing the config. This is typically due a features not supported by the boot image.
This should not impact the router after loading the "final" IOS.
