I recently inherited a 7010 with RP/SP running version 10.X. I need to upgrade it as far as possible (11.X) and have a 16MB Flash card for the RP. It's an Intel 2+. Anyway, All the documentation I can find here on the Cisco site says I should "Format" the card, which makes sense. As far as I can see, there is no such command in emable, disable or unable.
To use a flash memory card you must be using IOS 11.0 or later boot roms. What I've been doing is having the router pull the latest IOS from a tftp server. Yes its not the best solution, but it lets me run the latest IOS without having to get new roms.
My boot roms are 11.x and 16MB flash card, IOS is 11.x -There are no more IOS upgrades for this series. However, I can see IOS upgrades for 7000 series with different hardware.
Question- What different hardware I can install to replace the RP/SP so I can run IOS 12.x???
PS I would also consider trading this BIG beast for something smaller, I have several (about 4) 2-port token ring cards, (about 3) 8-port high speed serial cards, 2 4-port serial cards and several 8-port ethernet cards and, 2 working power supplies, ALL in GREAT working order.
OK........ there's a good ending to this, and no, it dosn't mean swapping out the router. IOS 10.X in fact does not include a format command. I actually booted the router with the new IOS via TFTP, and magically, there is a format command in 11.X. From there copied the IOS file from TFTP to slot0:, after formating it of course. All is well in the world tonight.
