Based on the boot log it

Based on the boot log it seems that system is trying to boot "c2960-lanbasek9-mz.150-2.SE9.bin" but without knowing the full path to image.

This is causing that bootloader cannot find image and going to find next available IOS in flash.

After you can see that this image has prefix: flash:/

Root cause - Wrong command entered:

    boot system c2960-lanbasek9-mz.150-2.SE9.bin

Solution:

    boot system flash:/c2960-lanbasek9-mz.150-2.SE9.bin

You can't boot image not

You can't boot image not stored on flash or broken/incomplete. Reload the image to flash. Make sure you have correct and undamaged file.

Console into the appliance

Console into the appliance and reboot.  I want to see the entire boot-up sequence, particularly the error message(s) being displayed. 

Can you also specify the exact model of the switch.

i have problem with loading

i have problem with loading cisco IOS c2960-lanbasek9-mz.150-2.SE9.bin.from flash

I presume the "upgrade" means copying the BIN file into the switch?  There's nothing wrong with it but in this case, the switch can't load it because the file has the incorrect filename and extension.  I recommend using the more versatile "archive download-sw" command to upgrade the IOS (make sure to use the TAR file).
