Make sure to save a copy of former IOS before upgrade...

Re: Upgrading IOS Image

If you have enough flash memory both IOSs will be stored on the flash.

Use the boot system flash command, first one with the new IOS, second one with the "old" IOS. If you have any problems with the new IOS the old one will automatically load. It is also very useful to use the boot system command in case you need to rollback the upgrade.

Happened to me a week ago.

The boot system flash command only makes sense when you have enough flash memory.

Also check the release notes for the IOS to ensure there are no major caveats that can impact your network

You realize that you are upgrading your Feature Set from LAN Base to IP Base.

Did you purchase the Feature Set upgrade from Cisco?

All IOS versions have bugs.  It's your responsibility to read the Release Notes and determine the risks or not.

Frankly, I'd stay the he11 away from your choice of IOS, 12.2(58)SE, and stick with 12.2(55)SE8.

If your going to use the archive command just make sure to download the IOS with a .tar file extension.

c3750-ipbasek9-tar.122-58.SE2.tar
