"BOOT variable = ,1" refer to command "boot system flash".

Type "sh run | i boot system" to see what boot statement in the current config. And then remove unused boot command. Then "wr mem" and check "show boot" again.

In your case remove the existing boot system commands and try the following one.

boot system flash:s3223-entservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF8.bin

boot system bootldr bootflash:s3223-entservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF8.bin

I assumed that the bootloader you mentioned in the output is correct.

Hope to help
