I'm trying to upgrade my cisco 1841 to 12.4(15)T IOS (to use an additional network adapter) but for the moment I can't. I delete from flash:/ the old image file 12.4(3i) and then I upload, with tftp, the new file c1841-ipbasek9-mz.124-15.T.bin. When I do the reload the router can't boot and enter the rommon mode. The message is:

"Readonly ROMMON initialized

program load complete, entry point: 0x8000f000, size: 0xcb80

program load complete, entry point: 0x8000f000, size: 0xcb80

program load complete, entry point: 0x8000f000, size: 0x177037c

*** TLB (Store) Exception ***

Access address = 0x454e

PC = 0x802000f0, Cause = 0xc, Status Reg = 0x3041e803

monitor: command "boot" aborted due to exception

System Bootstrap, Version 12.4(13r)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Technical Support:

PLD version 0x10

GIO ASIC version 0x127

c1841 platform with 131072 Kbytes of main memory

Main memory is configured to 64 bit mode with parity disabled"

From the rommon mode I can reload the old good image file and restart the router correctely.

Thanks very mutch.

It may be a sign the image is corrupted.

Upload the image once again and make sure to run a verify on the image before rebooting the router

The md5 output from the verify should match the md5 printed on the download page.
