Hey guys,

I'm not well versed with this model and here's my problem. I already had an IOS in bootflash, but as I entered the new one and gave my 4507R-E a "boot system bootflash:NameOfIOS" completely ignored and autobooted on the first IOS it found....The old one.

I ended up deleting and squeezing the old one so as to get what I wanted but, I would've enjoyed keeping the old one too.

Can you tell me what I'm doin' wrong, and how to go about doin'it right the nex time!?

Usually from the factory the config register is 0x2101 which means it will load the first one it sees in bootflash . Change the register to 0x2102 then use "boot system flash bootflash: and it will load whatever is named in the boot statement.
