Maybe the SXI9 image is corrupt.

Check the bootstring.

Check the location of the SXI9.

Cisco cat 6506-E VSS boot problem

Hi thanks for reply,

boot-start-marker

boot system flash sup-bootdisk:s72033-ipbase-mz.122-33.SXI9.bin

boot-end-marker

I verified checksum MD5  of the IOS in 6500 after copy and it's the same of the MD5 Cisco web page.

Regards.
