Same as in buying an illegal/pirated DVD than a legal one. To make software legal, you will need to purchase license for it. Also, I would think the ordering tool would not let you complete order without including software.

Looks good to me but I am not sure what features will be deployed on this switch.

In my opinion, Sup5-10GE which is primarily designed for 10 slot chassis might be an overkill for your 7 slot unless you are looking for 10 Gig uplinks. You could save some green by considering a Sup4(WS-X4515) or even a Sup2+(WS-X4013+) if this switch is not at the core and not meant for very feature rich deployment. Also, 4507R supports redundant Supervisors and you might want to consider this as well.

Re: Need help to build a catalyst 4500 switch BoM.

Can I use an IOS downloaded from cisco.com for Cat 4500 instead of purchased one ?

What is the difference between downloaded and purchased IOS ?
