Cisco 1720 - boot system flash syntax

Looked through past pages of posts and didn't find this one...

Have the 16Meg flash partitoned into two 8Meg. Running on the IOS in partition-1 and want to load and run on the IOS in partition-2. It seems that different routers have different syntax for the "boot system flash" command and I can't seem to find the one for the 1720 router.

Have tried:

boot system flash:2:filename.bin

boot system flash2:filename.bin

Was wondering if anybody knows the right syntax for the command...

Thanks! Rob S.

Re: Cisco 1720 - boot system flash syntax

DOH! " boot system flash:2:filename.bin " is the right syntax. Found that I don't have the memory for it though so the router comes up on the original IOS. Yeah boy...
