Cannot upgrade IOS image on 64mb Compact Flash 2811

I am trying to upgrade to a newer IOS ( c2800nm-adventerprisek9-sna-mz.124-19.bin). I am having no luck, and about 40% i get a time out or when i tried yesterday i received the message "not enough space".

I have tried the following

- used another 2800 (same issue)

- used other IOS's like advanced IP (same issue)

- erased flash, format flash and delete command(same issue)

- used Putty TFTP and TFTP32 (same issue)

the image loads into DRAM succesffuly if i use the "tftpdnld -r" option.

Below is the configuration and output

rommon 8 > tftpdnld

Try using Xmodem. It will be slow but give it a try:

Try a different tftp server , some will not work correctly once the files sizes get over a certain threshold for size. TFTPD32 should work ok .

Hi Paul,

The file size is around 40MB. Try TFTPD32.

This is a common problem with file size over 32 MB.
