ASR1001 won't take new image

I'm presently upgrading the image on two ASR 1001's where one was succesfully done while the other refuses to accept the new image. Both chassis are identical. Whenever it was reloaded, it says "no valid BOOT image was found". I have deleted the new image and reuploaded the same file to no avail. In addition, I used the same exact file on the other ASR 1001 and booted up with no issues. I also verified the flash file with normal results. Any thoughts on this?

I'm attempting to upgrade from 03.09.01.S to 03.10.01.S. - I just need to understand if I'm missing a step which otherwise would have been very simple. I have upgraded many routers but this was the first that I have encountered behaving oddly.
